ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Born in Cork in 1961, Conal Ó Gráda has long been at the forefront of traditional Irish flute-playing and truly has one of its most distinctive sounds. A multiple All Ireland winner in his youth, Conal’s debut recording ‘The Top of Coom’ in 1990 is still regarded as a seminal recording of flute-playing. Conal takes the basic elements of traditional music and forges them into a personal style which, once heard is unforgettable. His fast, rhythmically precise flute-playing has an earthy raucous tone reminiscent of the saxophone and is driven by a spirit from the true heart of traditional music. Conal has played, toured and recorded with many of the music’s leading exponents and it is with great excitement that the world of Irish Traditional Music greets the news that his long overdue second recording, Cnoc Buí is now on release.

Michael Strasser

As good as it gets
No-nonsense Irish flute-playing at its best. The same goes for the bodhran on the few tracks that are not flute only. If you like this CD compare it to Colm and Conal's earlier cooperation on "Top of Coom".
