Carmel Gunning, a whistle (and flute) player from Geevagh, South Co. Sligo, is one of the top whistle players in Ireland today, and this new CD (2005), with excellent accompaniments by Charlie Lennon and Junior Davey, is a nice showcase for Carmel's inventive style of playing. The tune list includes many classics of Sligo music, as well as several of Carmel's own compositions. One track features flute player Olivia McTernan, a former student of Carmel (who also taught Dervish's Liam Kelly and June McCormack), accompanied on guitar by Ciaran Mulderrig.
