Album Review - Rose Flanagan & Laura Byrne/Forget Me Not

My favorite topic of conversation in Celtic music is always the difference between Irish and Irish-American music. Few people even admit there is a difference and fewer still can put their finger on it, but I’m convinced that there are differences between Irish-American music in the States and music back in the home country. The new album, Forget Me Not, from Irish-American…See More

A Conversation with Kris Drever

We make no secrets about our fandom of Scottish (Orcadian to be more specific) singer and songwriter Kris Drever here at Hearth Music. We’ve written about most of his projects, especially his duo with Irish banjo player/guitarist Eamonn Coyne (last KITHFOLK issue). And that’s because Drever’s one…See More

"I enjoyed the house concert featuring Kathleen Conneely and her tin whistle workshop. I found her encouragement and patience beyond anything I could have expected.  I will practice "The Kilmovee Jig" tune until it becomes second…"

Album Review - This Is How We Fly

 The first time I heard the new album from This is How We Fly, I jumped on Facebook to proclaim, “if you want to know what Irish traditional music will sound like in 50 years, you should listen to This is How We Fly.” It was a bold claim, but I stand by what I said and still believe fully that this supergroup of young musicians is making music now that will change how we see Irish traditions down the line. Just as Lunasa…See More

"This is one of my favorite Celtic CDs released in late 2013. I especially like the opening set 'Ceapaval' and the 'Marches & Reels' set with 'After the Battle of Aughrim' (one of my favorite tunes). Great review,…"

Album Review - Eamonn Coyne & Kris Drever / Storymap

On paper, this album shouldn’t work as well as it does, and that’s really the magic at the heart of the collaboration between Irish tenor banjo player/mandolinist Eamonn Coyne and Orkney singer and guitarist Kris Drever. Both artists come from different traditions, but together Drever and Coyne find an enviably powerful synergy on…See More

"Love her voice. The video/audio link for "Hide" (from her previous album) was haunting and powerful. I'm anxious to hear more from this latest album release. Bravo, Devon. Cheers, Danny"
