In My Hands - Natalie MacMaster

In My Hands - Natalie MacMaster


With its innovative blend of old and new, In My Hands has been a big success and was the start of a new stage in Natalie's career. Recorded in Nashville, Cape Breton, Toronto and Scotland during early 1999, Natalie is accompanied by a host of talented artists throughout the album. The album was entirely produced by fellow Cape Bretoner, Gordie Sampson.

Many stellar players are featured on the recording including: two tracks with Irish accordion player, Sharon Shannon recorded in Scotland in January, several tracks featuring the jazz overtones of Holly Cole's band, a track featuring Mark O'Connor in a duet with Natalie on a number inspired by and dedicated to Natalie called "The Olympic Reel", an exciting duet with Canadian Spanish style guitarist, Jesse Cook titled, "The Flamenco Fling" and a vocal-fiddle duet with Rounder Records own, Alison Krauss, on a ballad written by Gordie Sampson, "Get Me Through December"... AND Natalie MacMaster's debut as a lead vocalist on her own innovative composition "In My Hands".
