If you like your Irish Traditional Music fast and frantic, this isn't for you. Josephine Marsh doesn't head into Martin Hayes territory but she does play at a relaxed tempo. There's no doubt the speeds have been chosen with intention, and to bring out the best in her playing. "Lilt" is a bit of a cliche in this context, but it's hard to find a better word. There's a nice lift too, though without going into too much of a backbeat. Accompaniments are light and extremely well done. Listen at a superficial level and there's just a delightful flow to the music. Listen with more attention and there's a stream of tiny subtle variations. They're not noticeable unless you're listening hard, and that's as it should be. There's no doubt from the sound that it's an accordion she's playing but well balanced between the old-fashioned heavy multi-reed sound and an excessively dry "modern" sound. A couple of minuses. I don't think the polkas quite work, maybe a little less subtlety is needed, and I've still not heard anyone really make slow airs work on Anglo concertina! Those are very minor points though as against a lovely piece of work overall.

5.0 out of 5 stars My Favorite Irish Accordion Album 27 Sept. 2000
By Gary A. Martin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I bought this on a whim in Ireland in 1996, long before Tara re-issued this independent recording. Nearly five years later, it's still one of my favorites of the 1000+ folk and celtic CDs on my shelves. The playing is light, sweet, bouncy and joyous. Never hurried. The tunes are often unusual, with strange twists and turns. Marsh also sometimes puts them in unusual keys and ornaments them in her own delightful way, making her playing stand out from all the other great Irish accordion players. Like Martin Hayes, Josephine Marsh is extremely inventive and innovative, while still sounding traditional.

5.0 out of 5 stars A beauty! 29 Jan. 2001
By Steven P. Mackin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I got to hear Josephine Marsh and her band 2 years ago at the San Francisco Celtic Music & Arts Fair. It didn't take long before she had us all dancing. Went straight to a concession stand and purchased this CD. When I got home and slipped it into my CD player it didn't take long before she had me dancing again. The track Bainis/Michael Joe Kennedy's especially bubbles like water from a spring. Delightful recording. Absolutely delightful!

i first heard the music of josephine marsh when she opened for another act at a club in greenwich village... gotta say her music was so wonderful i don't even remember who the other band was... afterwards i sat down and spoke with her and bought this cd and have listened to it countless times... each and every time a delight... in fact when i recently scratched my copy... i immediately bought another to replace it...! yes... it's that good.
