In concept and execution, "Crossroads" is a tantalizing and altogether terrific album from Irish traditional music's own "power trio. These three mean business and achieve art. Earle Hitchner, IRISH ECHO, USA From the first performance together eight years ago there was an immediate spark between the trio. This instant connection formed the backbone of the enchanting stage presence and musical ability that audiences the world over enjoy today. A successful start to the year with performances at Glasgows Celtic Connections festival and a two night sell out show at the Sydney Opera house as part of the Masters of Tradition concert continued with shows in Ireland, the UK and Europe. Blending newly composed tunes with traditional favourites Crossroads is a true merging of the old and the new. OConnor, Hayden and ODowd produce music that is breathtaking, descriptive and electrifying often all at the same time! The magic that is in their music and the respect for each other is apparent on stage and cannot help but leave the audience bewitched by their talent. This long awaited album captures the live essence of the group and has already been hailed as one of the top releases of the year from New Yorks Irish Echo. In their eclectic new album with Seamie ODowd, the versatile Máirtín OConnor and Cathal Hayden have managed to bottle the essence of their dynamic live shows.
