Re: Simply Whistle

Excellent whistle player from Manchester, another recording engineered and produced by Michael McGoldrick who is doing a great job in bringing out music like this by the many fine players in his local community.
A mixture of traditional tunes, tunes by modern composers and original tunes. I like this recording for the relative simplicity and clarity of playing - whistle by John Sindt, which is always a good choice. Leaning more to Micho Russell than Mary Bergin on the scale of ornamentation, I found this a refreshing change from many of the over-ornamented whistle recordings brought out in the past few years.
19 tracks, over 60 mins of music, and a very well-produced fold out digipak, with accompanying booklet with biography, photos of Manchester musicians past and present and tune details make this recording very good value indeed.
I saw the first Christmas cards on sale near Aberdeen this afternoon [ 19/09/20 ]. If you have Irish musician friends, here’s your Christmas presents sorted.

Don’t recall how I ended up finding this album. What a breath of fresh air. Lovely, lovely playing and a wonderful selection of tunes. Have downloaded from iTunes and gone ahead and ordered the CD… really like this.
