Traditional Irish Music
Included below is the first sound from his new solo album called The Narrow Edge which he refers to as being "a distillation of the many influences I have encountered over the years both in London and Ireland." It is greatly influenced by the musicians he has played with as well as the recordings of flute players like Jackie Coleman, Jack Dolan, Paddy Doran, Gabe Sullivan, Jim Donohue and Peter Horan. The tunes included are in many instances familiar with a five part version of "Craigs Pipes" or "Kregg's Pipes as Tom Morrison called it. Also included are Pay The Reckoning, The Earl's Chair, Toss The Feathers and many more recognisable names. John also includes two of his own compositions, The Humours of The Neale and Colonel Sullivan's. There are 14 tracks in total with John playing Flute, Guitar, Piano and Whistle. Ruairí McGorman provides accompaniment on Bouzouki.
We will add a link to where it can be purchased shortly.
