Recorded in Belfast
Live at the Culturlann MacAdam O’Fiach.
(Beo is irish for "Live" or "alive")
I just heard Jean-Michel Veillon together with Jamie McMenemy and they played a lot of the tunes on ths CD - different backing, but the same great stuff. Jean-Michel can play at the limits of his instrument, but more important he plays everything very full-hearted!
This CD is a must for (at least) all flute players
It’s "BEO!" simply because this is a live recording.
I picked this up 6 years ago and it’s still in regular rotation. ‘Nuff said.
The Rambling Pitchfork
Jean-Michel’s version of ‘The Rambling Pitchfork’ is practically note for note (apart from his own varations) the same as Tommy Peoples version on the album ‘Matt Molloy, Paul Brady, Tommy Peoples’. He must have learnt it off the old 78. 🙂
Matt Molloy, Paul Brady and Tommy Peoples may be getting older but I suspect they might object to being accused of being on "an old 78", as these types of recordings stopped in around 1960
