Editorial Reviews

Product Description

As a co-founder of best-selling Irish instrumental outfit Lúnasa and current member of Celtic favorites Capercaillie, flautist and piper Michael McGoldrick has played a great part in expanding the audience for British Isles instrumental music with his expert technique and visionary sensibilities. AURORA is the long-awaited follow-up to his groundbreaking 2005 album WIRED, and finds McGoldrick surrounding his fluid, soulful performances and compositions with a startling variety of rhythmic backdrops. Also joining McGoldrick are Dezi Donnelly, Donald Shaw, John McCusker, Donal Lunny, and more.

Review

Traditional melodies, contemporary dance floor rhythms and jazz/funk workouts:
one of the most adventurous yet intelligently configured sounds currently to be
heard in any genre. --The Independent

gutsy world folk jazz by a virtuoso who grew up trad. If this doesn't have you up and moving, check your pulse.

I have his three previous albums and they are all fantastic. He is not just an Irish or Celtic music player. He mixes styles together but always has his signature flute or pipe sound and style up front. He is simply a master of his instrument, a truly incredible player with lots of heart and soul. If you like Celtic music, or jazz, or just fine instrumental music you will not be disappointed!

I had the album "Fuse" by the same artist that I bought 10 years ago in a Celtic music shop in Dublin and enjoyed it so much that I wanted to hear more music from Michael Mcgoldrick. This CD is wonderful and the music enchanting. highly recommend it!!!

This is good. Not great, but good. I was spoiled by listening to "Wired" first, and then this. Wired is a GREAT album. I won't play Aurora nearly as often as Wired, but it will be a good spin now and then.
