Alba’s Edge, featuring Neil & Lilly Pearlman

Run To Fly

  Scottish fiddle & piano

Expressive melodies of Scottish fiddling blend with jazz improvisation and harmony, funk bass lines and the rhythms of Latin America, in a new sound BBC Radio Scotland called "a wonderful concoction."

A hybrid of Scottish and Cape Breton traditions as performed for over 30 years by fiddler Ed Pearlman , with jazz and Latin music influences from pianist Neil Pearlman – an expression of America, crossroads of cultures.
