Champions Of Ireland: Flute

By Grainne Kelly And Ciaran Marsden

I’ve never heard of either of these players but they’re quite good. I wouldn’t highly reccomend the CD but it’s nice to have and not a waste of money so to speak.

There are a few mistakes on the box. I put in the list of tunes as they came on the box but:

— "The Dogs Among the Bushes" is actually "The Wind that Shakes the Barley"

— "The Gloggin Reel" is a misprint I think. It sounds to me like the "Floggin Reel".

They`re quite good??

Praise indeed coming from a Dublin man!-Delighted it wasn`t a waste of your money.

Ha!

Funny how I thought these players were good…Goes to show you how much I lacked in knowledge of flute playing a few months ago. Avoid!

Re: Champions Of Ireland: Flute

There are a whole series of these "Champion" recordings. I have a feeling that these recordings were made by players who were quite young at the time. The accuracy of the tune titles is very poor, and I’m fairly certain that quite a few were made up.
PS - I think that the second name should be Ciaran Marsden, at least that is how it is spelt on the 3 x CD compilation I have.
