Traditional Irish Music
As the year draws to a close we are looking at picking an Album of the Year. Tough task. We have also been doing reviews of late and are watching the various charts. I thought it would be interesting to see what members are buying across the globe, your album of the year for 2012.
'Ego Trip' by MacDara Ó Raghallaigh, recorded live and unaccompanied - Album of the year, no contest!
For me it would have to be Triúr Arís by Triúr (Peadar Ó Riada, Martin Hayes and Caoimhín Ó Raghallaigh).
I was at one of their gigs a few weeks back, there is something special about them when they get together. Great group! Great Album!
We Banjo 3 for me, great album, great tunes, great sound, great inspired musicians. Top class!
I have to second this pick. This album is very, very good. I'm a flute player and I probably listened to this album more than any single flute album this year. Highly recommended!
