Since his initial rise to prominence with the INDIE Award-winning world-folk trio Helicon, Robin Bullock has established a reputation as one of America's finest instrumentalists on acoustic guitar, cittern and mandolin. His twin passions for Celtic and Appalachian traditions, coupled with his fertile imagination as a composer and arranger, result in a musical vision 'filled with grace and charm and warmth and insight' (Bluegrass Unlimited). For his sixth solo recording, Robin takes a direct approach, casting his spell over the listener with introspective solo performances and stripped-down acoustic ensemble arrangememts. The ageless melodies of Ireland, Scotland and Appalachia, together with some of Robin's most inspired compositions, create a world of enchantment indeed. Includes concert favorites 'First Light in the Mountains,' 'Shenandoah,' and Robin's thunderous mandolin tour-de-force 'Bonaparte's Retreat.' 'In the tight-wire game of solo acoustic, there's no escaping the core issue: How's your touch? Your tone? Your time? Just how well CAN you play? Masterfully, if you're Robin Bullock.' - Guitar Player 'A rare combination of technical virtuosity and emotional nuance...Robin Bullock has a deep appreciation of the power of music to touch people's hearts, and the skills to make that happen when he plays.' - Dirty Linen, the Magazine of Folk and World Music 'Robin Bullock's inspirational quotient is quite a powerhouse...the real spark of blending both Celtic and American folk styles provides a momentous result.' - Folk Roots 'Celtic guitar god.' - Baltimore City Paper.
