Product Description

Drawing influences from a life and world beyond his Manchunian roots, this album is a collection of tunes and songs from the internationally acclaimed flute player, the majority of which are self penned, with some traditional material as well – including a song, featuring, Heidi Talbot performing a stunning guest vocal on “Waterfront” written by Louisiana’s finest old time master, Dirk Powell.

As well as long time musical associates like Dezi Donnelly and Donald Shaw, the credits do indeed read like a “who’s who” of the folk and world genres that Mike is so prominent in, names familiar to us all, as diverse as John McCusker, Donal Lunny, Ed Boyd – an enthralling performance by Parvinder Bharat on tabla, as well as stunning guest performances from Anna Massie, Signy Jakobsdottir, Dermot Byrne and many others.

Michael McGoldrick will be touring the UK with his big band in the autumn of 2010, before that a busy spring and summer of festival and live appearances as himself, and also in all the various guises that this unbelievably talented and versatile musician allows him to appear.
