The fiddlers choice

This is a beautiful album from Eileen O’Brien. Joined by some of irelands best this is a must have for all fans of traditional fiddling amd accordion music. The tracks of her joined by her late Dad the lengendary Paddy O’Brien on accordion are the highlights lf this album. Overall a great album, let down in places by poor music that ill fits the rest of the album. (track 12)

Overall a 3 star album
