CD review: Emma Sweeney Pangea (Sweeney) Emma Sweeney: Pangea (Sweeney)
Custom byline text:
Manchester's Irish music scene has produced some formidable talents (this album's producer, piper, flautist and whistle player Michael McGoldrick chief among them), and Emma Sweeney may yet eclipse them all. A fiddler of exceptional poise, Sweeney opens this debut album with Jimmy McHugh's Flooded Road To Glenties with a sweetness of tone allied to judicious use of rougher-edged bow strokes.
