The Well Of Tradition


Bríd O'Donoghue has long been recognised as one of Ireland's finest whistle players, though she herself is very modest about her musical ability and has never sought the limelight. Paddy Canny, a wonderful fiddle player from East Clare considers Bríd the finest traditional whistle player he has heard. The music on the CD was selected for its associations with the people Bríd learned from, in that sense it's a very personal recording, here she plays the tunes learned when growing up. It is often said Irish traditional music is the music of people and places. If ever there was a CD that reflected that, this is the one. On this is a beautifully spaced recording, the humble tin whistle in the hands of this master musician becomes a wonderful instrument which can produce music of the highest caliber, uncluttered and unencumbered by accompaniment, the artistry of the musician and the beauty of the music are allowed free range.
