Just added ... Eddie Moloney was a very influential Galway flute player in the mid 20th century who can finally be studied in great detail on this fairly new double-CD collection of private and archival recordings.

Let it be known that the US state of Michigan, too, harbors outstanding bearers of the tradition, Alison Perkins and Nicolas Brown. This new album demonstrates classic, artful command of pipes and fiddle. And to set itself further apart, it explores some neglected corners of the O'Neill collection, honoring O'Neill's sources John McFadden and James Early in particular.

Just added . . . from the end of last century (1999), a great album combining sensitive Clare trad fiddle (and banjo) with a modern drive and clean sound, while somehow maintaining that easygoing Clare atmosphere.

+Nathan Gourley and Joey Abarta 's new album achieves a rare pinnacle of duet perfection, more than slightly elevated by Owen Marshall's accompaniment. The canonical combination of fiddle and pipes is well established by some giants of the past decades, but this album earns its place among the best of them.
