Great debut CD by excellent young flute player. Others may say it better than me :
"A wonderful collection of complicated and beautiful tunes played masterfully on concert flute by Fergus with thoughtful accompaniment" - James Kelly
"A breath of fresh air… a shot in the arm, and a light in the tunnel" - Seamus Tansey
.. and as if that’s not enough, :
"He speaks in his own musical voice with a maturity that belies his years" - Matt Molloy

Hello there,
‘Really like this CD ^^.!!!
First Reel track 5, seems to be miss-rooted.
Fergus McGorman wrote on the booklet from his cd, that this one, Sean Ryan’s Reel, is from De Dannan first reel on their 1989 Album, The mist coverred Mountain. But I don’t realy find it… Could you help me to identificat this tune ?
We know lot of tunes attributed to Sean Ryan (1919–1985) fiddler from Nenagh Co. Tipperary.
I have somes LP from him Traditional Music of Ireland Vol.1 & 2, with: P.J.Moloney or Peter Carberry. It’s a great musicien.
Thank you,
Charles.G
