  Multi-instrumentalist Fraser Fifield says this eight-track release is an album he has wanted to make for “a wee while.” On SECRET PATH he concentrates on the low D whistle with Paul Harrison (keyboards) and Tom Bancroft (drums) helping to bring the music to life. It is the first of three recordings through which he […]

For her fifth solo album, SHORELINES, award-winning Irish traditional singer and flute player, Nuala Kennedy has tapped into the rugged, natural beauty of County Clare, where she now lives, for inspiration. The album’s compelling songs of love and loss look closely at the shifts and changes in both coastal waters while exploring the resilience and […]

In addition […]

  The title of fiddler Hanneke Cassel’s latest album, Infinite Brightness, isn’t derived from any of its nine songs, yet it perfectly encapsulates all of them. Rooted in influences from Scotland’s Isle of Skye and Nova Scotia’s Cape Breton, this irresistibly bright, sweet and tender, all-instrumental album taps into musical traditions carried to North America by immigrants and passed […]

  JKL DUO – Jacopo Lazzaretti and Kerry Lynch – play music straight from the heart, using the flute and classical guitar to deliver what’s been described as ‘a melting pot of creativity’ to present Robert Burns ‘as you’ve never heard him before.” Splitting their time between performing, recording and teaching from their studio in […]
