Courtney Hogan & Keelin Wedge

Dark & Amber Rosin—Courtney Hogan & Keelin WedgeCourtney Hogan & Keelin Wedge are no strangers to the PEI music scene. Having competed together at fiddle competitions throughout their childhood, gaining popularity as solo musicians, and then later both joining the popular PEI band Fiddlers’ Sons, the fiddling duo decided it was time to join their talents together for a collaborative CD titled Dark & Amber Rosin.

The CD title could refer to the shades of a fiddle bow’s rosin. But given the complexion tones, fiddle colours, and playing styles of these two hard working band members, they have taken the phrase to refer to themselves and their musical collaboration.

In true Island kitchen party style, most of the tracks were researched and rehearsed together around the woodstove of Hogan’s century country farmhouse in the dead of the winter. “We were just messing around with some old tunes together one night and the vibe seemed so Island-authentic that almost minutes later we’re working out how we’re going to put this together on a CD. The project was born from a late night jam session,” says Hogan.

The CD contains a selection of the two fiddlers’ favourite traditional and Celtic tunes and also contains some vocal tracks from Wedge who recorded the entire project in her own studio in Wellington. The CD was mastered by Brent Chaisson with cover photography by Nancy Hogan and CD design by Results Marketing.

The CD will be available this month during all of their performances including the Close To The Ground Concert Series and the Emerald Boxcar Ceilidhs.
