Re: The Freewheeler

We were fortunate to have Dougal Adams from Australia join us recently as flute tutor at Ceol Aneas 2019. This album captures relaxed, thoughtful playing from Dougal on flute, Ado on fiddle and Ben on guitar that allows the music to breathe. I enjoyed the use of a ‘C’ flute adding to the unhurried quality of the music. The combination reflects many years of playing together resulting in an interesting selection of tunes and an album that is a delight to listen to. Thoroughly recommend.
