Some of the best Irish fiddling out there
adam broderson | VA | 01/30/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Simply the best Irish fiddling/guitar playing I have heard in a long time. The tunes carry a wonderful spirit and the songs are amazing. Burke and O'Dhomnnail will always be (in my mind at least) the greatest of duets. I would recommend this album for anyone interested in learning Irish fiddle or backup style guitar."
A superb, memorable disc!

"I've listened to Irish traditional music for a good many years, and it doesn't get much better than Portland. A wonderful, memorable blend of music and song. Kevin Burke's fiddling is in top-form, and the songs, in Irish gaelic, are hauntingly beautiful. I turn to this disc again and again and it always sounds fresh. My only complaint: There's not quite enough music - running time is 37 minutes and some change. Still, this is a superb disc, one I would strongly recommend."
Gets better with every listen
Tax Man | Fort Mill SC, USA | 11/16/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Boy has this one grown on me to the point it's always in my car CD player. It's a very pleasant mix of hauntingly slow sung songs (airs? not sure but they are tracks 2, 5 and 8) and uptempo instrumentals. I am a guitar player and find it wonderful to listen to Michael O Domnhaill's back up playing. At first listen I didn't think this was that great, but it gets better with every listen! I've just ordered their CD Promenade based on Portland."
