"Not your average collection of fiddle tunes and all the better for it.  The mood is never somber or too respectful and this pair should be encouraged to give us more." – Folk & Country Review

"David McGuinness and his Concerto Caledonia never fail to add spice to a performance of early music… it makes for robust entertainment." – The Scotsman

Acclaimed Baroque violinist and Celtic fiddler David Greenberg continues his exploration of traditional Scottish music - this time with Scottish keyboard player David McGuinness and Concerto Caledonia.

Starting out in 18th century Scotland, the musicians range far afield in both place and time, as they bring the stylings of Scottish early music to Finnish folk songs and more. The virtuoso playing and the musicians' enthusiasm make Spring Any Day Now a joyful celebration of the Scottish style.
