Peter Horan: flute
Gerry Harrington: fiddle

A year after their first album together, South Sligo flute player Peter Horan and Kerry fiddle player Gerry Harrington are back with another installment of mostly Sligo music, this time without any accompaniment. Now 80 years old, the remarkable Horan may well sound even better this time around. One only has to listen to the third track, a great medley of reels played solo by Horan with uncommon gusto, to wonder if there’s something different about the water around Gurtin… His later rendition of “The High Level Hornpipe” sounds less assured, and consistency is a bit of an issue throughout, but the high points are truly astonishing.
