I don't know what I was expecting when I requested to review Even Hotter Water, but I must confess to a feeling of disappointment as I listened.
Playing traditional Celtic melodies, jigs, reels, and songs on traditional instruments - hammered dulcimer, fiddles, accordion, bodhran, six- and twelve-string guitars, Irish bouzouki, whistles - Brenda Hunter, Jill Egland, and Mary Tulin sure play and harmonize exceptionally well. But as far as bringing anything new to the table well, that's where my disappointment lies. Inquisitive traditionalists they may be, but in the end, as lovely as it sounds, it still sounds like another Irish music collection.
