Hup! Flute players’ edition

By Uncategorized

The 20 December 2016 edition of TG4’s “Hup!” television series mostly features flute players, starting with Matt Molloy playing some reels with Sean Keane and Arty McGlinn; it includes a wonderful set from Patsy Hanley, John Carlos, and Tommy Guihen. Here’s the link; it’ll only be available until mid-January 2016.

Kieran O’Hare and John Skelton

One of my favorite flute albums in recent years was Kieran O’Hare’s and John Skelton’s duet album, Two Tone, released in late 2014. I like it even better than their previous duet recording, Double Barrelled. You can hear excerpts of both CDs on their website.

Site redesign and update

Welcome to the new version of “A Guide to the Irish Flute,” which first went online in 1995 as a FAQ file in the Ceolas website.

The new version is completely redesigned, has a new URL, and plenty of updates. I’ve updated the flute maker’s directory and turned it into a searchable database. I’ve also turned the list of recommended flute players into a database. I’ve updated some of the text of the guide, and added some great new photographs.
