Perfectly delightful

(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a wonderful CD, made before either of the participants hit it big in contemporary Celtic music. The tunes are traditional or traditional-style (the lovely "Trip to Skye" is Whelan's own composition), and he and Ivers, both accomplished solo performers, meld their styles well. The album has an improvisational liveliness, but never veers into being sloppy. The instrumentation is simple, keeping the focus on the two soloists and their straight-ahead renditions of the tunes. I copied this CD onto tape about 6 months ago to listen to in my car, and I've nearly worn the tape out by now. It's a terrific album."

"Great traditional playing from two great Irish musicians. Sounds a bit like the pub music I heard when in Ireland, and it takes me back."
