Adam Cadell
Bush Songs

SAB081 | CS, DL

Radical traveling fiddler Adam Cadell is a teacher/student of the instrument, one-half of the duo The Scrapes, and is based in Brisbane. Cadell flirted with a life and practice in academia and modern composition, but shed all that in favor of researching and playing with fiddlers from around the globe, including heroes like Tony Conrad and Henry Flynt. The shift from highbrow to a player of the people comes to bear with Bush Songs, his rendering of Australian labor folk songs. Cadell works every bit of his violin on Bush Songs, giving new life to these songs of yore. Essential violin soli.
