This is a wonderful CD by Tiarnán Ó Duinnchinn and Stephanie Makem. Stephanie's voice perfectly complements the fiery, delicate, and perfectly coordinated bag, bellows, chanter, and regulators of Tiarnán. Just listen to the B-flat set on "The Silver Slipper"-"Glen Road to Carrick."
Some officiates have suggested or attempted importing jazz, blues, rock, or whatever influences to "complement" the tradition. This living tradition has within itself the jazz of jazz, the blues of blues, the rock of rock, and much more. Who would add flour to an already perfectly baked loaf of bread or gild this lily of a CD?

Listen to "Úrchnoc Chéin Mhic Cáinte" for taste and subtlety.”
