5.0 out of 5 stars Unique and Thrilling, 20 Aug 2006

This review is from: Journey (Audio CD)
I've never heard anything this amazing since Riverdance! He really is a one off as, he doesn't just produce Irish folk as such. Instead, he merges Irish folk with a little modern jazz, pop, and traditional Eastern European folk music.

Two standout tracks which highlight these genres include, "Cavan Potholes", a traditional Irish air fused with a classy saxophone break, and "Smecano Horo", a Bulgarian gypsy dance with uillean pipes to accompany it.

This, quite simply, must be heard. If you need an introduction to Irish music, jazz styles or folk,or want to listen to a distinguished work in it's owm right, it's just fantastic!

5.0 out of 5 stars The best of Donal and friends, 23 April 2004
In many ways a journey through the best of Donal Lunny is a journeythrough the progress of Irish folk music of the last 25 years. Thisexcellent 2 disc compilation features many of the most seminal bands inIrish music; Planxty, The Bothy Band, the great Moving Hearts and latterlyCoolfin each redefined the tradition in turn. The heart of this collectionis the collaboration between Donal and many of the major pan-Celticmusicians of our time. Donal abu!
