"The music collected on this album is more than just a document of something that happened: it’s a celebration of the vitality and variety of musical performance today."
"If there wasn’t a regional folk tradition for me to tie my musical identity to, then fine — I was going to invent my own."
“You see a colour, you see an image, and that is gonna have an impact on how you play a piece, especially if you have some freedom on how to do it. But you, as a player, need to be open to that.”
“It’s the interaction between what I’ve created and what that performer is gonna create that I thrive off.”
