Review
1996's Dreamer's Waltz is Scott Nygaard's second solo release. These songs are vibrant with fiddle and guitar, the heartfully played. "Icewater" has the traditional bluegrass style, as does the fast-paced instrumental number "Crockett's Honeymoon," and there's an old-timey sound on "Evening Shade." "Mind the Gap" is also noteworthy for its skillful banjo. Nygaard is particularly effective on his own original modern compositions, like the lucid "Derwent Vale" and the cheerfully uptempo "Beaten to the Puncheon," which will surely have listeners reaching for repeat play. Recommended for bluegrass fans, both progressive and traditional, as it has a nice mix of each. ~ Murrday Fisher, All Music Guide
