(June 2008) 9 tracks (51 mins): Sofia Rakia * Waterfall * Kerry's Dream * Traces Of Thrace * Passing With The Time * Drawing Maps * Ceres * Signs Of Life * Nedyal's.

Composer and multi-instrumentalist Fraser Fifield's third album, in collaboration with Bulgarian musicians Nedyalko Nedyalkov and Georgi Petrov. Original Fifield compositions bring together the six musicians, coming from traditional Scottish, jazz, Latin and traditional Bulgarian backgrounds.

Fraser Fifield (soprano saxophone, low whistle, Highland pipes, keyboards, percussion) and Graeme Stephen (guitar), David Robertson (percussion) and Guy Nicolson (percussion), with guests Nedyalko Nedyalkov (kaval) and Georgi Petrov (gadulka).

Nedyalko Nedyalkov plays the kaval, a versatile yet ancient instrument - traditionally a shepherd's instrument, in Nedyalkov's hands it produces a huge variety of sounds - while Georgi Petrov plays a gadulka, 'like a fiddle but much older'.

Fraser is a well-known face on the Scottish music scene, renowned for his folk-inspired saxophone playing, beautiful compositions and as a piper and innovating low whistle player. His original compositions provide the mainstay of both his Trio and Band's repertoire, and he also writes and produces music for a variety of other projects, including film and television.

Fraser has also performed with The Chris Stout Quintet, The Graeme Stephen Sextet, Salsa Celtica, The Donnie Munro Band, Old Blind Dogs, Mr McFall's Chamber, The Mick West Band, The Unusual Suspects and La Banda Europa, amongst many others.

"The steadily growing overlap beyween the Scottish folk and jazz scenes has been a rich source of invention in recent years, but even in this context, multi-instrumentalist Fraser Fifield has emerged as one of todays's outstanding talents." (Sunday Herald)
