Take the Air

One of the best whistle cd’s EVER.Beg,borrow ,steal, or better than that buy it - you won’t regret it.

This is a CD by Sean Ryan the whistle player, not Sean Ryan the fiddle player and Pj Moloney the flute player.

The details for this CD should really be amended to say jsut “Sean Ryan”.

Bought the CD in Westport last week after failing to find it in Milltown, Ennis or Galway. Great CD. Got a chance to see him playing a set with Mary Bergin, Cathal McConnell and other top whistle players during Willie Week - brilliant.

I’ve edited the details so that they’re correct; this is definitely just Sean Ryan playing the whistle brilliantly. I posted this recording years ago and I never listed P.J Maloney as a contributor, so I’m wondering how the heck the name got there.

Track 5 should be “Broderick’s/Galway Rambler”
