"This is a great album" - Irish Music Magazine "A very pleasing record" - fRoots "A solid collection of songs and tunes" - Dirty Linen "soulful, evocative, lyrically convincing songs " - The Living Tradition Andrew Cadie is a Northumbrian singer, fiddler, guitarist, Northumbrian piper and composer. His fiddle style is rooted the northern English and neighbouring Scottish traditions. He has gained praise and critical acclaim for his playing, singing, tradition-based songwriting and tune composition. fRoots magazine described his songs as "quite outstanding". His CD 'The Snow Tree' has received excellent reviews all over Europe. Andrew was one of the very first graduates of Newcastle University's degree course in Folk and Traditional Music. Review Extracts: "...He's a musician with an ear for a finely tuned melody, his playing is both sensitive and crafted, and the albums a grower. These soulful, evocative, lyrically convincing songs sit very comfortably within the English folk genre." -Debbie Koritsas, The Living Tradition, July 2006 "...It's the songs, however, that predominate; all but three are self-penned, and these turn out to be outstanding, with a deft feel for both economy in construction and expression as well as a mature appreciation of tradition. The opening Emigrant's Song has the kind of leaping melodic compass that I associate with the songs of Bernie Parry, while O My Lady takes the Keel Row into gentler Steve Tilston territory and Widow's Walk is a minor masterpiece of evocative poetic writing. "This is a very appealing CD, although due to it's sheer abundance of gently inventive ideas it may not reveal all it's treasures absolutely immediately - but when it does hook you in, you can't stop playing it ...' - David Kidman, netrhythms.com, May 2006 '...I have a feeling that in times to come when Andrew has, as he surely will, become a major player on the Folk music scene this album will become much sought after. So get yourself a copy now while you still can - you will not be disappointed. All in all this is a hugely impressive debut and I wait with great anticipation to hear Andrew's future recordings as well as those of his Roll a Penny colleagues Katie Doherty and Roger Purves.' - Paul Cornwall, Adventures in Music "Andrew is a performer and writer to watch... a very accomplished instrumentalist" - Irish Music Magazine.
