I've always heard there's a fine line between madness and genius. There are many, many moments of genius on this album, a few of which have been cleverly disguised as madness. Well done! A new favorite indeed.
Such a daring approach. They play so well together. The music feels like breathing. It never gets silly, the humour brought to this music comes from deep understanding, like the humour you share with someone you've known all your life. So familiar and yet a celebration of beauty that never stops to amaze the musician or the listener.
Wild and beautiful music from the West Coast of Ireland played on fiddle and accordion with immense passion and a huge sense of fun.
"the most maddeningly nourishing, elevating, and
mesmerizing Irish traditional music you'll hear today."
Earle Hitchner. September 26th, 2007, IRISH ECHO
This CD contains 12 tracks of Irish traditional music played on fiddle and accordion. Swerving from infectious slides to slow airs, sean-nós songs to wild, passionate polkas, Begley and Ó Raghallaigh unleash the raw power and beauty of their Kerry music.
