Album Review - Toner Quinn & Malachy Bourke / Live at the Steeple Sessions

Recorded live - 6 tracks, 28 minutes.  Two of the best exponents of the art of fiddling. Live at the Steeple Sessions by Toner Quinn and Malachy Bourke is the gold nugget in a year of some exceptional fiddle music. Synchronised, stripped bare and measured fiddling by two musicians who embody the tradition through their free spirited and natural approach.  They expose the raw beauty of the tunes and melodies with a rythmn that flows with effortless ease. This is late night after hours type music.  It's close the blinds and keep the authorities out lest the spell be broken. 

We have all had those nights when the stained boards of some dimly lit pub reverberate the sound of a couple of fiddlers who have decided that another set is in order.  If only you could capture it, bottle it, keep it. Well now you can, this time in the setting of a church.  They've kept it short but packed quite an exceptional punch creating in the process one of the highlights of the year. Exceptional and inspired fiddle music.
