Hello, I have not come across many recording I really liked recently. Can you recommend some that you have come across and liked a lot.

The last ones I really liked were BlueBells Are Blooming by Brid O'Gorman, the Luck Penny by Karen Tweed & Tom McElvogue (their rendering of Mayor Harrison's Fedora is among my favorite of all times). I basically like traditional stuff played not too fast.

I find that many of the recordings that are technically perfect and played at lightning speed, I enjoy for a week or so and then never listen to it again. So if you have come across some neat stuff that is not necessarily obvious, please do tell....

I'm a big fan of Brid o'Gorman as well. You might like Paul Smyth who also doesn't play at 100mph.

You may already have his albums, but just in case, my favorite recordings of a not-blazing-fast flute player are by Mike Rafferty. His album "The New Broom" with Willie Kelley is one of my favorites. All traditional tunes played in a relaxed style.

I'll second Steph Geremia. Her first solo disc, "The open road", is also wonderful.

My favorite flute disc of all is "The man with the wooden flute" by Chris Norman. It's a mixture of styles and traditions.

Another favorite Irish disc is "Loozin' air" by Garry Shannon.

Noel Sweeney has a new recording on its way, I'd watch for that.

There's this guy...Kevin, h-m-m-m... Kevin, Kevin, h-m-m-m...oh, now I remember! Kevin Krell :thumbsup: who has put out a marvelous 3 volume, six CD "Wooden Flute Obsession" set which is a great place to listen to a huge variety of Irish Trad flute players. You can then pursue the CD's of your favourites. If you already have this compilation, maybe it's time we asked the aforementioned Mr. Krell to produce a volume four! :poke:
cheers,
Paul

A heartfelt thanks to all of you! Lots of great artists to go through, some known and others not at all, with a special thank you to kkrell, I had never heard of Nicole Rabata, and I really like Armorica. Thanks again!

I was wondering how I missed this, now I see we posted at about the same time. Yes, Mike Rafferty!

Also the Jack and Charlie Coen album. I think it may have been recorded in their kitchen -- authentic Irish music, warts and all. But for every imperfection, there's another bit of feeling that's absent in most albums.
