Folkwords Review:
"The feeling of connected closeness created by ‘An Seisiún’ (‘The Session’) is strong, its enveloping involvement is tangible, and that is the elemental attraction of this album. You could be there, sat in the pub or the back room with a session of Irish music in progress around you. The tunes range through lively step-inducing romps to sorrowful meaning-filled emotion, and throughout the obvious interaction between the musicians builds into an image of like-minded souls rejoicing in the musical intimacy of ‘the session’.

The tunes seamlessly blend tradition with original composition, innovation with rejuvenation from the spirited ‘Wine O’ Clock’ and ‘Tony’s Orange Sherbets’ through the spritely ‘The Christmas Eve Waltz’ to the contemplative ‘Lazy Dayz’ and yearning ‘Rhona’s Waltz’. And for good measure there’s the added bonus of Pauline Scanlon adding her pure voice to a delightful take on ‘Parting Glass’. This is definitely a session worth attending.
