If Only I Could Fly

Emerald Rae

“There are a lot of new sounds on the album, If Only I Could Fly, from Boston roots musician Emerald Rae. We’ve become used to young artists with virtuosic musical powers, but it’s still rare to find young artists with great talent and wide-ranging tastes. Not content to stay in one tradition, Emerald Rae moved across the spectrum, absorbing tunes and rhythms from across the Celtic lands, and ultimately returning home to America. Not content to remain just a fiddler, she’s expanded to become a fully-fledged songwriter as well. And now she’s bringing all of this together into a wholly-new sound that you’ll find electrifying.” -Devon Leger (Hearth Music)
