AllMusic Review by

Scottish Traditional Fiddle is a collection of Scottish music performed by the title instrument. The performances here are quite beautiful, especially the performances that are without accompaniment. Several of these songs have other strings to accentuate them, and though the music is still good, the production on these tracks is simply not as good. For the most part, the first half of the disc seems to be more dedicated to the solo pieces while the second half seems to have the accompanying musicians. This separation works for these tracks, as the production differences do not stand out nearly as much after the first song. Fans of this sort of music will probably find this very entertaining, as this is a solid album of fiddle music that has enough variety and quality playing to keep it interesting.
