Heathery Breeze Review
If you like your flute playing out in front of the other instruments, you will appreciate the spare accompaniment on this disc, which allows Matt Molloy's Bb, Eb and D flutes to shine. Molloy delivers stirring, deeply textured versions of some of the most beloved tunes in the Irish repertoire, such as "Moving Cloud," “Drowsy Maggie,” "Silver Slipper" and "The Hare in the Heather." Listen for the fine contributions of Donal Lunny on guitar, bouzouki, and synthesizer, and Michael O'Domhnaill on guitar.
Shadows on Stone Review
Shadows on Stone
On Shadows on Stone, Matt Molloy offers an energetic mix of varied material, ranging from traditional tunes to original compositions (and even a song from China). In between the fast-paced jigs and reels Molloy has tossed in some slower songs, just to let you catch your breath. Accompaniment throughout is polished and effective.
