Mary Bergin Sets TheGold Standard of Irish Tin Whistle Music
Kevin Hing | St. Petersburg, Florida United States | 07/12/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This album is perhaps the single most influential recording of tin tin whistle music ever made. The majority of the tracks are traditional Irish jigs and reels, but Bergin's dynamic style and astounding technical mastery of the instrument set an entirely new standard to which most if not all players of the tin whistle now aspire.Each track features either solo work by Bergin, or Bergin accompanied by a bouzouki and/or a bodhran (the traditional Irish drum) or bones (that's right, rib bones used as highly distinctive percussion instruments). For those masochistic whistle players who wish to try to play along, the liner notes include the key of the whistle she plays on each track. I cant recommend any one track over another, they are all my favorites...and thanks to the wonders of Amazon technolgy you can hear samples using the links above. The music speaks for itself.It is also interesting to note that most of the whistles used on this album are Generations whistles, common whistles obtainable at music stores for less than $15.00. It is her skill that makes them sound like a million bucks."
Essential and Historic!

"Well, after Coleman, Cooley, Killoran, O'Brien, and OC the modern - but sadly rarely recorded, Paddy Cronin ( Irish Traditional Fiddler ) mention a few and not leaving out Matt Molloy 'An Ri na Ceol' IMHO - I thought I had heard it all.


This is not merely essential, it is the foundation of modern Itrad since it contains everything and some more that modern and earlier exponents of the art are striving to express but not quite delivering the goods.

If you want to be astonished and surprised again like the first time you heard Coleman, Cooley or indeed any of the great exponents of the art, then go buy and be reborn to a new level of Irtrad!"
An amazing work!

"I have literally hundreds of Celtic CDs and albums. I have been playing whistle, fiddle, and mandolin for 30+ years. Other than family, it is the one true love of my life. This is easily one of the best albums I have come across. The joy that pours out of each track is astounding. For technical people, her playing is totally clean, at an unbelievable speed. This makes the awesomely lovely Tin Whistles album by Potts and Moloney look like a warmup. This is the pure, true, real Irish music at its best. Mary has really raised the bar with this one, in quality and performance. It is an act of love."
