Fonn le Fonn

The name was new to me but I bought the disc based on the selections — for the most part pretty standard stuff. Jim McGuire from the Uilleann Pipe Mailing List says this:

"Very nice player and fellow, lives in Connemara. Plays a Crowley set and learned to play from his father."

Solo flute and uilleann pipes by O’Ceannabhain, piano acc. by Eugene Kelly.

The tunes are well treated and cleanly rendered with bits of tasteful variation to keep them fresh. There is one slow air on the flute. It would seem as if the pianist can only play in one mode, and that can be distracting.
