Gentle Breeze Celtic Music for Flute and Whistle - Various Artists

  • Regular price $15.00


This collection of pieces originally recorded for the Green Linnet label is ideal for anyone who loves Celtic music, the flute, or both. The music runs the gamut from fast-paced and exciting ("George White's Favourite/The Sligo Maid," "Kitty in the Lane/Captain Kelly/The Green Mountain") to slow and sweet ("Raibh Tu ag an gCarraig," "Gwerz ar Marc' hadourig Bihan/Autrefois Disait un Guerrier/Ton Derobee") to everything in between. There are quite a few standout pieces as well; "Gan Ainm/Emily's" has a traveling feel to it, and "Seamus Ennis' Jig/Connie O'Connell's" is an excellent flute and fiddle duet. The most exciting piece here, however, is "Paddy and the Bandit," featuring a fiddle and drum backing that adds considerable drama. Flute and whistle are the lead instruments here, so much so that it's sometimes hard to hear the backing instruments, but this is overall an excellent sampler. --Genevieve Williams
