The Beat Of The Breath


The new album from tin-whistle virtuoso, Brian Hughes, who is widely considered as one of the best tin whistle players of his generation. 'The Beat of the Breath' is Brian Hughes's second album on the Clo lar - Chonnacht label. The first, 'Whirlwind' (CICD164), was released in 2006 to widespread critical acclaim. As on Whirlwind, Brian Hughes is joined again by guest musicians, Donnchadh Gough (Danu) and Garry O Briain. New collaborators, the guest musicians, Sean McElwain (Teada) and David Day, join Brian on this latest album. Brian Hughes is from Athy in County Kildare. His earliest introduction to music was through his grandfather, Christy Bracken, a noted bagpipe player, who passed his love of traditional music to his grandson. As well as the tin whistle, Brian also has a great interest in the flute and the uilleann pipes and was a regular visitor to the Pipers' Club on Henrietta Street, Dublin, in his youth. Brian has always been an avid collector of tunes, old and new .
