Looking for a Rock
(independent, 2006)

This trio of women from Florida has released an album of Celtic music that includes some original music along with the traditional tunes that are familiar to fans of ceilis and sessions. Even the original pieces sound like authentic traditional tunes and fit in very well with the rest of the album.

Sarah Mitchell, Jasmine Hart and Frances Pisacane even have a couple of tunes with a Spanish feel that, while not often heard in traditional Celtic music, is included in the Celtic realm.

Juniper's Looking for a Rock is a good album for anyone wanting to pick up some of the tunes since the girls perform the pieces at a slower pace than many traditional players. With that said, it is still an album with a nice collection of tunes that is slightly different from the usual fair.
