Traditional Irish Music
Kirsten Allstaff will be known to many people as one of the founders of The Online Academy of Irish Music, the online resource for learning traditional music. She teaches a number of courses on flute and whistle which are well worth checking out. Gallowglass is her debut album and she is joined by a number of well know musicians including John Joe Kelly (Bodhrán), Eoin O’Neill (Bouzouki), Mhairi Hall (Piano), Jean Damei (Guitar), Jon O’Connell (Double Bass), Tony Trundle (Percussion) and Adam Shapiro (Fiddle). The Gallowglass is the name of the album and for those interested The Gallowglass were a group of Scottish warriors who settled in Ireland during the 13th - 16th centuries. This fits it very well with Kirsten's own Scottish roots.
