Reviews:

1. AllMusic - Rick Anderson
This album is something of a summit meeting between two major powers in Irish music – fiddler Tommy Peoples and flutist Matt Molloy, both veterans of the legendar Bothy Band and world-class instrumentalists. Guitarist Paul Brady plays a supporting role, though he steps out front to sing, beautifully, on the bitter "Shamrock Shore." Throughout most of the album, Molloy and Peoples take turns leading the trio through sets of traditional jigs and reels. Interestingly, the program includes a few session standards ("Speed the Plough," "Toss the Feathers," "The Connachtman's Rambles") but consists primarily of more obscure tunes. Molloy solos on a set of reels consisting of "The Crosses of Annagh" and "McFadden's Handsome Daughter" and delivers them with his trademark offhanded eloquence; Peoples shows off his sharp, astringent attack to perfect effect on "The Newport Lass" and "The Rambling Pitchfork." (Yes, "The Rambling Pitchfork." Don't ask where these tune names come from.) Inconsistent production quality is a minor annoyance throughout -- some tracks sound distant, cramped and monophonic, others sound close and dry. But it's only as minor annoyance.
