Traditional Irish Tin Whistle & Flute
Bríd O'Donoghue has long been recognised as one of
Ireland's finest whistle players, though she herself
is very modest about her musical ability and has never
sought the limelight. Paddy Canny, a wonderful fiddle
player from East Clare considers Bríd the finest
traditional whistle player he has heard.
A little biography
Bríd was born in Caherush, midway between Quilty and
Miltown Malbay. She started playing the tin whistle at
the age of six at Annagh National School where her
school teacher was Tessie Walsh, sister-in-law of
Junior Crehan. Her music was very much influenced by
her uncle J.C. Talty and Willie Clancy. She grew up
playing with and absorbing from the music of J.C. and
Willie. Her love of whistle playing is as a result of
this. Willie Clancy gave her much encouragement to
continue playing the tin whistle. She remembers how
Willie always made the time to to sit down and play
with her during her visit to his house. He gave her
much instruction on tunes and ornamentation at a very
Bríd starting playing flute at the age of eighteen and
enjoys playing the flute at sessions and céilís. She
has a great love of the Irish Language and and Irish
Tobar an Dúchais
The music on the CD was selected for it's associations with the people Bríd learned from, in that sense it's a very personal recording, here she plays the tunes learned when growing up. It is often said Irish traditional music is the music of people and places. If ever there was a CD that reflected that, this is the one.

All tracks traditionally arranged by Bríd O'Donohue
