CELTIC GUITAR SUMMIT 

Acoustic Guitar, July 2003 

It's a rare joy to witness the start of something new in Celtic music. That's just what Steve Baughman and Robin Bullock have accomplished here arranging Celtic tunes, well-known and exotic, perky and pensive, for two interlocking guitars. In the hands of these masterful players, the results are rich and engaging. The O'Carolan harp airs blossom with new depth and harmonic possibility, and the excursions into Breton and Welsh repertoire make one wonder why we haven't heard more of this stuff. Celtic Guitar Summit makes your fingers itch to play along, especially on tunes like "Hewlett," which Baughman and Bullock turn into a wild ride to Grateful Dead territory and back again. Judging from the guffaw on the CD jacket, it was clearly as much fun for the boys to record this as it is to listen to.
