Seamus Egan has long been one of the most exciting soloists--on flute, whistle, pipes, guitar, and banjo--in Celtic music, and he has matured into a fine composer as well. He has followed up his evocative soundtrack for The Brothers McMullen with an all-instrumental solo album, When Juniper Sleeps, which contains six original compositions so melodic and emotional they seem to call out for vocals. --Geoffrey Himes

Once you listen to Seamus perform on any of the multitude of instruments that he is capable of playing, you'll understand the meaning of a musical prodigy. Seamus's music lives and breathes, far beyond the expert talent required for speedy reels and jigs to soft moving airs. This album defines Irish music that refuses to let go of your soul. His abilities are quite simply beyond reproach. An absolute requirement for any Celtic music lover.

I don't know how it took me sooo long to discover Seamus Eagan. I thought I was pretty well rounded musically, but this was a huge gap. This guy can bring a tear to your eye on one track and have you up dancing naked around the Celtic bonfires of your ancestors on the next track!! Then he fires up the -what is it, a 5 string banjo??- and you could be in Nashville!! Can it get any better? Now I'm horrified to see this album's not available on Amazon. People, you must find this album however you can. It's guaranteed to transport you out of this troubled world for just as long as you want.

Seamus Egan starts off with his traditional Irish music genre, and on this CD, adds influences of New Age, jazz, Western swing, oh maybe Klezmer... I can hear sounds that remind me of Leo Kottke and Bela Fleck... this is very tasty listening music, well done and all the musicians play as well as Egan who is some kind of genius. I grin, thinking what kind of totally intense fanatic musician he must be! Yet nothing sounds driven or tense at all; this is thoroughly relaxing and can put you into a space resembling a great high quite without any of those "substances". Maybe this is so addictive that it should be illegal.

Just don't buy it thinking you're going to hear pure traditional Irish music 'cuz it goes 'way beyond that.

I too bought this CD many many years when I heard the Brothers McMullen Soundtrack and found that Seamus Egan far outshown a movie that was, unfortunately, fairly forgettable. Mr. Egan plays so many of these instruments with a breeziness the belies their difficulty, making the listener think that it must be EASY to play that many instruments. He certainly has a gift. And if you are interested in traditional Celtic music or even Appalachian bluegrass, this album is a must buy.

I bought this album after hearing an interview with Seamus on NPR. I have played it many many many times and loved it each one. I loaned it to a friend and counted myself lucky when he returned it. The tunes are so graceful and compelling that I find myself weaving them into my consciousness in ways that inevitably make me smile.

Fantastic music by an incredibly talented artist. When Juniper Sleeps is a "must have" for any fan of Irish or ecclectic music. Flute, guitar, and beautiful melodies... calming -- great relaxing music. For something more exhilarating -- check him out in Solas!

These are the most lyrical instrumentals you will ever here. My very favorite CD, it's perfect for many moods. Play it on hot summer evenings sipping a beer on the porch, it's perfection. I've seen Seamus at least 10 times and he still amazes me.

As another reviewer wrote, this CD truly is perfect for many moods. Although it is seven years old, it has never been archived to my CD cabinet. Friends still thank me for the gift. This is truly as special masterpiece!
