When there is nothing left to prove and no commercial hurdle left to clear, you are liberated to make the kind of music you want to make knowing the audience is already invested, going wherever the ride takes them. Such rarefied status belongs to superstar Canadian fiddler NATALIE MACMASTER, and that’s exactly the spirit fuelling “Sketches”, her dazzling 12th solo studio album and first since 2011’s “Cape Breton Girl”. “Sketches” is also the highly decorated musician’s first recording to feature fiddle with guitar but not piano as is customary with Cape Breton fiddle music.
