Some really fine traditional Irish music, mostly duets between violin and uilleann pipes. Especially fine considering that both musicians are self-taught and have been living in Chicago most most of their lives. And remarkably fine sound quality considering it was recorded in a kitchen… But really. Both these players are outstanding, and the music is very raw and energetic.
Anyway, I don’t know much else about these guys except what’s written on the album, which you can read for yourself if you’re interested. Not particularly haunting, avant-garde, influential, or any of the other qualifers for most of my posts. And the album can start to sound the same if you don’t listen to much celtic music. But I like it all the same.
