Review of An American In Texas
Santa Fe Reporter June 2016
reviewed by Alex De Vore
Kudos to Kuncicky for registering the super-apt website domain, “oldfiddleguy.com,”
and double-kudos for absolutely slaying, old fiddle guy or not. An American in Texas
not only weaves in and out of styles so deftly it’s mind-boggling, the entire
production is absolutely perfect. From the Spanish-sounding opener “Old Stoat” and
the oh-so-bluegrass movements of “Snake in the Grass” to the Irish-esque “Bending
the Dragon” and the gorgeous closing title track, the entire album is so jubilant
that Kuncicky’s absolute love of fiddle-driven numbers practically jumps off the
album and hugs you tight. In a sea of emulators, the man has gone all-original amid
an old-timey style of music, and this is no small feat. Like fiddle? You need this.
In reality, there is, perhaps, no one of our natural passions so hard to subdue as pride... for, even if I could conceive that I had compleatly overcome it, I should probably be proud of my humility.
