About this project
"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.
If you backed for a digital download of the first track, you'll get yours as soon as you take the backer survey ^_^
I'll start on the bracelets sometime next week, once I'm sure I haven't injured my wrist with all this fiddling. The discs should be done by the end of August, at which point I'll ship them as soon as I know where to.
If you backed for a concert . . . either I've already gotten in touch with you, or you should send me a message to arrange it.
