Traditional Irish Music
Silver Threads is a debut album that brings together the sound of concertina and guitar across 12 tracks of mostly new compositions. It has been a long held desire of concertina player Yvonne Bolton and ex The Outside Track guitar player Alan Jordan to do something special. They had a wish to develop and record some of the melodies that have been seeping into their session life in the vibrant Limerick music scene. As an album it stands out as something slightly different to some of the more recent releases that we have heard. The combination of overall sound, delicate arrangements and the new compositions give it a slight artistic edge. Guitar and concertina generally work very well together as displayed here. If the musicians goal was to create some new and interesting melodies then they have succeeded.
