“Melinda Crawford plays with the precision and attention to detail that marks out all the great Scottish players. However, what marks her out from the rest is the passionate performance she delivers on this recording. This is terrific stuff.”
~ Bruce MacGregor of "Blazin' Fiddles," Scotland
“Melinda Crawford's The Sheiling Braes is a recording through which her enthusiasm for the genre fairly flies off the disc. The tracks display high energy and she has the fiddle 'speaking' the Gaelic' very well indeed. You'll want to listen to this one many times.”
~ Dr. John Turner, Ten-time Nat'l Scottish Fiddling Champ
