Description

Brian Hughes is from Athy, Co. Kildare, and has established himself as one of the finest tin whistle players in the tradition, a fact confirmed by this album of vibrant whistle music. Brian's earliest introduction to music was through his grandfather Christy Bracken, a noted bagpiper, who transmitted his love of traditional music to his grandson. As well as tin whistle, Brian also has a great interest in the flute and uilleann pipes and was a regular visitor to the Pipers' Club in Henrietta Street, Dublin, in his youth. He has always been an avid collector of tunes both old and new, many of which sit comfortably alongside each other on this wonderfully varied album. Brian is joined on 'Whirlwind' by guest musicians Garry O'Briain, Nollaig Casey, Brendan O'Regan, Donnchadh Gough (Danu), James Blennerhasset and Bruno Staehlin.
