In the annals of Irish music, few names are as revered as that of Uillean piper Paddy Keenan, a driving force in the legendary Bothy Band. His new collaboration with guitarist/vocalist Tommy O’Sullivan shows he’s not about to rest on past laurels. From the opening pips and sustained notes of the jig “The Lost and Found” to the more-strident closing strains of the hornpipe “Dinny O’Brien’s,” Keenan demonstrates astonishing range and command. He’s also versatile: his low tin whistle rendition of “Mary Bravender” has the haunting quality of Native American music, and he is equally adroit on flute. Also a master of guises, his vocals on “The Maids Of Culmore” are evocative of Andy Irvine. His cover of Sandy Denny’s “Stranger to Himself,” a hoppy, strong-pulse marvel, and those on “Killing The Blues” are appropriately gritty. The synergy between these two stellar artists makes for a release that will long graze on your CD player.
