Driven

This album is the amazing debut of two of the most impressive young trad players out there! Donall Donnnelly’s fiddling is brilliant: intricate, rhythmical, driving, precise, creative, throaty, smooth, lilting; He demonstrates a dynamic range that few fiddlers can match. Brian Hanlon’s beautiful guitar accompaniment manages to flawlessly provide both delicate harmonies and grooving rhythm, a rare combination of power and artistry. To their stunning fiddle-guitar synergy, Brian adds two fantastic songs and some amazing bodhran playing. Seriously, this is one of the best first albums I’ve ever heard; I can’t recommend it highly enough.

Cool

But where can I buy it? I can’t seem to find any online stores where I can purchase it…….

Where to find Driven

You should be able to buy it from either the iTunes music store or CDbaby.com. Definitely check it out.

I’m going to have to get hold of this CD - I had a fiddle masterclass with Donall last week, and he’s a magnificent player, brilliant teacher and top class guy. All round genius!
