New CD: The Journey - Brendan Mulvihill NOW on SALE! $20 32 tunes on 14 tracks - Brendan's solo sessions as he works on tunes for the second volume of the Irish Scroll and prepares for solo concerts. “The long awaited solo CD, the Journey, by Brendan Mulvihill is a masterful, impeccable performance of some of his favourite tunes. Brendan, the best living legend of Irish fiddlers, plays unaccompanied with great lift, lyricism, and lilt the likes of which you have never heard, a hallmark of his unique style and spontaneous presentation. Every tune played exemplifies that Irish music was truly written for dancing. It is hard to believe that many of his selections were written over a century ago. His personal innovations and stylistic runs make these tunes sound timeless as if they were freshly composed. The tunes are approached with whimsical excitement, but relaxing tempo akin to being home at a private Sunday afternoon kitchen session by the cooker. The picture on the CD is a quietly spoken memorial to his close friend and fiddler, Fr. Gerry Creedon, a local parish pastor, whom we recently lost, and nephew of Seán Ó Ríada.” By Donnchadh Ó hArrachtáin
