Album Notes
"Michael Hurley is marvellous - a surrealist hillbilly with deep roots, a whimsical touch and a voice like gin-soaked chocolate cake dropped in sand... On these 11 originals and covers he's the antithesis of the bedsit singer-songwriter or folk-clubber: outdoorsy and free" Sylvie Simmons, MOJO

"There are many nuances to Michael Hurley’s music that transcend the tedious codes and clichés of folk… Bellemeade Sessions ranges from self-penned to traditonal interpretations, to some of Michael's favorite blues tunes from the 1920s, all recorded in various locations from 1999- 98. He sings, plays guitar, banjo, fiddle, piano and mock trumpet and despite being 35 years in the business of music-making, he harbors an irreverent approach to whatever genre he takes on from traditional Appalachian fiddle tune ‘Ruben's Train’ to Blind Willie McTell’s ‘Love Changing Blues". Leagues O'Toole, Dublin Event Guide
