More Pure Drop Traditional Music

Continuing from their excellent earlier CD, "Waifs and Strays," Hynes and Liddy offer sensitive and accomplished playing from North Clare. Michael has written several tunes and some are presented here. There is a bit of whistle playing and some solo fiddle, but mostly traditional fiddle and flute duets with light piano backing.
This CD is to be welcomed for the absence of special effects and the natural quality of the recording and the music. This CD brings to mind and is comparable other wonderful CDs from the same general area: "Happy to Meet," which also offers traditional flute/fiddle duets by two great players: PJ Crotty (RIP) and Jame Cullinan. And "A Clare Conscience," with Aidan MacMahon and Anthony Quigney (Donncha Moynihan).
