"High Strung" will be the first published recording by Boston-area fiddler Ket Waters. It will have five tracks that capture the essence of modern fiddle music in every note -- from the traditional Scottish dance tunes in "Twitchyfoot Set" to experimental jazz in "The Berklee Effect" and progressive rock-influenced "Metalbird". Ket takes inspiration from pioneers of fiddling such as Natalie MacMaster and Hanneke Cassel -- "High Strung" spins Scottish, Irish, and Cape Breton traditions together to create an energetic, fiery sound that has never failed to bring people out of their seats. 

"High-Strung" will be recorded by Snarky Blowfish Studios, and produced in small quantities by Polymath Solution. This Kickstarter project will be funding the production-- paying for the discs, cases, liner notes, graphic design, and pizza for the session musicians.

    I could just send you two bracelets, but that would be boring. Instead we'll send you a signed copy of the EP as well as the custom bracelet. And lots of warm fuzzy feelings.
