Musical Traditions:
"with absolutely no accompaniment, it’s as close as you’ll get to the pure drop. An essential addition to any collection". ~ Ken Ricketts and Marya Parker

"STEEPED in the Clare tradition, Brid O’Donohue is a long time tutor at the Willie Clancy summer school ~ Her playing is clean, flowing and mellow. Her tempi are steady and her phrasing and rhythm are superb; there is little tonguing and only subtle variation on repeats, whilst her ornamentation is full but not flashy or excessive, though she eschews the cran." ~ Jem Hammond

"Brid O’ Donohue is one of the best I have ever heard. Her album is called " Tobar on Ouchais"….she is a fairly simple ( I use that phrase lightly) but a very tastefull whistle player, awesome CD."
