June McCormack, flute player
In November of 2011, Blayne Chastain and I had the opportunity to go to Ireland for 10 days to film flute players for our documentary, “The Keymaster: Patrick Olwell’s Story”. We met and interviewed 14 flute players, traveled over 1,000Km, and had one of the most memorable trips of our lives.
Our second stop that day was at the home of June McCormack, a flute player from BallyTogher, County Sligo. She had not only agreed to the interview and filming, but offered to put us up for the night. A lovely stone cottage overlooking rolling hills and fields, with peat fire roaring in the fireplace, was our personal B&B for the night. And best of all, it came with amazing tunes from a lovely player with roots deep in the tradition.
I hope you enjoy watching and listening, and if you do, please visit our Vimeo link vimeo.com/ondemand/keymaster to watch the trailer. “The Keymaster: Patrick Olwell’s Story” is available there as a download, or on DVD and Blu-ray from irishflutestore.com
