Melodies and Irish fire: Fidil and Edel Fox
Edel Fox brings a fiery grace to her music as well. Her chosen instrument is the concertina. Like the men of Fidil up north in Donegal, Fox soaked up music from the people around her whilst growing up in West Clare. The tunes on her album
Chords & Beryls include music she’s learnt from musicians who are pipers, flute players, fiddlers, and composers on the harp, and to which she’s put her own stamp and arrangement. Though she says not a word on the album, you can clearly hear the voice of an artist who knows and loves melody and story. Especially worth noting are The Knotted Chord Set and The Joyous Waltz.
