Brendan Ring - Troublesome Things (2001 Ireland) [320]

"I'll be the first to admit that I'm not a particularly huge fan of the uilleann pipes, but Brendan really shines as a low whistle player on this album. I've owned the CD for several years now, and tracks like "The Robbery of Chester Jail" still leave me breathless after listening. His technique is very sharp and precise without being robotic, and anyone who plays the whistle or flute will immediately recognize his talent. I'll be honest and confess that I'm a bit biased, as I had the pleasure of meeting him in person in Cork years ago and enjoying a great conversation with him over a pint. But just have a listen to tracks 4, 7, or 9, and you be the judge. "

"A friend, John Murphy gave me this album after returning from Cork a couple of years ago. It has some great original tunes by Brendan, and his whistle and pipe playing is excellent."

Thanks for this one - I'll be the first to admit I disagree fiercely with the reviewer. :) The pipe playing is awesome, and one of the best tracks is the song "Oisin." But some people are only interested in the chops in Irish music, not the soul - alas!

I'm with you, Anon. Discovered the music before I found the review :)
