On The Edge by Ed Pearlman and Neil Pearlman is a cracking album of tunes on mainly fiddle and piano. It demonstrates clearly the love that Ed and Neil have for the music of Scotland, Cape Breton and elsewhere, with Neil's jazz influences shining through. A real gem."  – Ian Green, president of Greentrax Records, Scotland

Tightly interwoven, heartfelt, and rhythmic... ...Fiddle music from Scotland, Cape Breton & beyond blended with jazz piano influences
