CD Reviews

A poignant and beautiful recording of uillean pipes
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This is a unique recording by one of Ireland's most exciting instrumentalists. Most of the tracks feature uillean pipes at the forefront, with a few tunes on low whistle. Arty McGlynn offers sparse but very poignant accompaniment on acoustic guitar. Some tracks feature some well placed percussion as well. The tunes are a good mix of driving dance tunes and slow airs. The style is very accessible and likely to appeal to traditional music fans as well as the uninitiated. You cannot match the power of Paddy's pipes for inspiration, meloncholy and passion."
