Richard Wood

Unbroken—Richard Wood“Wood has compiled a solid body of work over the course of his career, but Unbroken tops everything that came before. Yes, it’s really that good.”—Doug Gallant, Charlottetown Guardian

Prince Edward Island fiddler Richard Wood’s long awaited new CD Unbroken is a diverse collection of traditional Celtic fiddling along with original compositions that stretch the envelope of that genre. “For my eighth record, I wanted to do something unique, something a little more creative, adventurous, something a little different.” The roller coaster ride takes you from the expected traditional Scottish, Irish and Galician strains—to heartfelt personal tributes, an ode to endangered species, big band funk, a dreamy fantasy, and a full-on gospel sing along.

The recording was co-produced by Richard along with his long time compatriot Gordon Belsher at Gordon’s studio in Guernsey Cove. It was mastered by the legendary Bob Ludwig in Portland, Maine, with photography by Lorne Miller, and artwork by Raymond Arsenault at TechnoMedia. It features contributions from musicians Brad Fremlin, Remi Arsenault, Mike Cowie, Todd MacLean, Skip Holmes, Natalie Williams Calhoun, and Caleb Acorn. The epic concluding number has 16 Prince Edward Island vocalists—Eddy Quinn, Joey Kitson, Kendall Docherty, Teresa Doyle, Kelley Mooney, and several more.

An official launch concert will take place on October 6 at Trinity United Church in Charlottetown. CD’s can be purchased online now at www.RWood.ca.
