Album Notes
Irish Traditional music came under the spotlight in the seventies, thanks to the ground breaking work of such bands as Sweeney’s Men, Planxty and The Bothy Band. These groups exposed a whole crop of younger musicians to the creative possibilities in a mountain of music as old as the hills.

Here on this recording Cormac Breatnach, Niall Ó Callanáin and Paul O’Driscoll, three of that younger crop, display their creative musicality. Both founding members of the highly innovative, but short lived, Meristem, Cormac and Niall have been playing together since their school days.

In this trio format, which is the ideal compromise between solo and group playing, they perform a mixture of traditional and original music in a style that reflects not just their traditional roots and modern influences but their own musical souls as well.
