What's Hup! Dylan. Dylan Foley in the spotlight

His new album is going down a storm and he is as busy as ever as we enter festival season. Its always a pleasure to come across talent like this. 

As a fiddler Dylan Foley is one great musician. A 3-time All-Ireland Fiddle Champion, Dylan was a student of the great Rose Flanagan (the original fiddler in Cherish the Ladies) and counts Joanie Madden, Brian Conway, Mike McHale, and Monsignor Charlie Coen among his primary influences. He is a vibrant stylist whose playing has been called “impeccable and spirited.”

Our own Brian Conway had the following to say

" Anyone listening to Dylan Foley's new recording will agree with me that the next generation of traditional Irish music is in great hands. My first memories of Dylan were as a precocious 8-year-old student of my sister Rose Flanagan and I feel very fortunate to have played a role in his development as a fiddle player. Dylan's intense love of the fiddle and his amazing talent were present at the outset and those qualities are fully on display in this album. In this wonderful recording he demonstrates that it is possible to be faithful to his musical roots, which can be traced back to Michael Coleman and Andy McGann, while being strongly individualistic. This recording cements Dylan Foley's reputation as one the finest Irish fiddlers of his generation."

Have a listen to this sound clip and you will understand why. The new album "Hup " is now on sale and is worth checking out. Have a listen on www.cdbaby.com and tell us what you think

If that dosent get you fiddlers excited I don't know what will.
