This delightful instrumental collection of Celtic Aires is played with an artful sensitivity and profound insight into the Celtic soul. Will's beautiful work will readily appeal to fans of the quieter moments on albums by the Chieftains. Performed on whistles, lute, mandolin, harp, piano, fiddle, violin, harmonica, guitar, acoustic bass and accordion, it is a quiet, lovely album for those meditative moments.
The Lark in the Clear Aire is an instrumental collection of melodic Celtic airs that provide wonderful imagery, creating stories without words, like only musician, storyteller, poet and writer Will Millar can. Millar on tin whistle and lude, a lute-like instrument, is joined by family and friends on harp, guitar, violin, bass and accordion, producing a full, rich palette of Celtic melodies. The Lark in the Clear Aire features many of the melodies Millar made famous while with The Irish Rovers, a group that brought Celtic-inspired music to a worldwide appreciation with hits like "The Unicorn" and "Wasn't that a Party." ~ MusD, All Music Guide
