Product Notes

Troy Macgillivray has played over 200 performances already in 2013 ... and he's not done yet! This year alone, he has played in Alaska, Washington, Wisconsin, Florida, New England, Scotland, Ireland, Denmark and nine Canadian provinces. The multi-talented, multi-award winning instrumentalist is known for his ability to unearth the lesser-played but great tunes of respected composers. With such tunes in his repertoire, Troy has assembled his 6th album called Tune Poets. Tune Poets weaves some of Troy's own compositions alongside fantastic and unique arrangements of great composers from the traditional fiddle world to present a wide and varied mix of music that will captivate fans old and new alike. Tune Poets is an instrumental recording that highlights the great composers Calvin Vollrath, King Ganam, Scott Skinner, Andrea Beaton, Phil Cunningham, Gordon MacQuarrie, John Campbell, Donald Angus Beaton, Wilfred Gillis, Dougie MacDonald and Natalie MacMaster. "There are 12 tracks on the new CD ... can you imagine trying to narrow selections down to just 12 composers from all of the great tune poets out there?" says MacGillivray. "It was an enriching process to take tunes that others wrote and fit them together so that they make one set of tunes." Tune Poets originated as the name of a tour that Troy did in the fall of 2012 through New England with fellow Antigonish musician Allan Dewar. "It really resonated with the audiences and we received great feedback, especially that they enjoyed learning about the composers of the tunes. All the positive comments and encouragement from that tour prompted the making of this recording", says MacGillivray. It's been 5 years since Troy last recorded and released a CD. "I've been thinking about it for a while and when the opportunity to work with Chad Irschick became available, I knew it was the right time." Chad Irschick mixed and mastered Troy's last two East Coast Music Association's award winning projects: a collaborative recording titled When Here Meets There (2008) and a concert recording called Live at the Music Room (2007). Having had a great experience already in working with Chad, Troy kept this in mind for his 6th recording - this time going to Toronto for the in-house recording experience at Inception Sound Studios where Juno Award winning projects from Rita MacNeil, The Rankins, Buddy and Natalie MacMaster, and Susan Aglukark, have been recorded. Joining Troy on the new CD are his fellow accompanists Allan Dewar, Jake Charron and Andrew Downing.
