Carmel Gunning “The Sligo Maid”

Sligo whistle player and singer Carmel Gunning’s latest recording with Charlie Lennon (on piano) and Junior Davey (on bodhran). She herself is a superb player, but her past pupils also become well-known musicians now: Liam Kelly of Dervish, June McCormack, and Damien Stenson of Teada. Another past pupil of her, Olivia McTernan plays flute as a guest on this album.

I would dare to say, this is even better than her previous recordings: “she leaves no doubt that she has matured and mellowed into a well-respected performer with an individualistic style,” writes Seamus Duffy in the notes.
