In their own Words : Enda Seery on "Peace of the Countryside"

"My playing is not an awful lot different on this record, but there are definite changes to my style. I got to pick up a good few tips in Limerick when I met some of the greats like Mary Bergin, Sean Ryan, and Kevin Crawford, all truly brilliant musicians. I suppose I picked up various bits and pieces from them.  People would notice a change in my whistle playing for sure.  Not radically but a few minor bits like that.The first album was really whistle.  On this one I did take the feedback from a few people who mentioned doing some duets as well as adding some flute tracks. I took that on board and mixed it about a little. “

"With regard to the songs on the album it would be fair to say that I wouldn’t be known as a singer, but I have been singing for a good few years and my family would have done a few pub gigs and stuff like that when I was younger. For this album I said I would add it into the music mix. The flute tracks are also a change.  I have about 4 or 5 flute tracks on the album.  I only really got into playing flute in the last 4 or so years. I’ve always played it on and off but was probably more whistle crazy I suppose”.

"My work has been solo up to this point and John Byrne and I have pursued that duo existence.  Having said that, I would like to get involved with a group if I could.  Myself and John are in the early stages of setting one up. That is something I would definitely want to do because it can get a bit lonely working solo all the time”.
