Irish Studio Traditional recording at its best,
This review is from: Blackwater (Audio CD)
Blackwater is sublime, comfortable and powerful. Mark Kellys pulsating guitar, Ciaran Currans brittle bousouki lines, Maireads fiddle melodies and haunting vocals, Ciaran Tourishs fiddle weaving between the rythmn and melody like an man possessed with intracate music and little hope of release. Dermot Byrnes melodian/accordian playing Bunker Hill like a God!!!, helped brilliantly by Currans bouzouki. Notable and clearly audible appearances by Donal Lunny(vocals,keys,bodhran and bouzouki), The Ni Domhnaill sisters(piano and vocals), Dathai Spruille(guitar),Steve Cooney(bass,didge,vocals), Conan Doyle(vocals Trk 3), make this a great introdution to the power of Irish music.
