Kevin Krell, Executive Director of International Traditional Music Society, Inc., has put together a second wonderful compilation of IT flutists. Well, perhaps "compilation" is not the correct word because many of the tracks on these CDs (see also WFO Volume 2, Disc 1) were recorded specifically for this wonderful project. A variety of playing styles are represented and are presented in a way that shows the richness of this diversity. The artists included on this CD are (in order of the listed tracks):

John Kelly
Peter Molloy
Peter Horan
Gregory Daly
Justin Murphy
Sharon Creasy
Kevin Henry and Maggie Healy
Mick Hand
Leslie Bingham
Anthony Quigney
Chris Norman
Michael Hurley
Peter Woodley
Michael Turbidy
Noel Lenaghan
Sean Ryan (Chicago)
Nuala Kennedy
Thomas Bernard Ryan
Joe Skelton
Caoimhin O Se
Brendan McKinney
Zac Leger

Standfield’s Polkas

The first one in Leslie Bingham’s set is the Ballydesmond Polka #3, if anyone wants to know.
