Highly-respected flautist Jacquelyn Hynes has released her latest recording, an excellent collection of Irish flute tunes entitled Silver and Wood. Available through Hobgoblin Music, the CD features vocalist J Eoin, Eoin O’Neill on Bouzouki, Quentin Cooper on banjo and Yvonne Casey on fiddle.
Tracks include The Ashplant, a Jacqui original called Gini’s tune, The Cuckoo, and Roscommon Reel/Darby’s Farewell to London. Jacquelyn is a multi-instrumentalist and composer, who has supported a number of Ireland’s leading musicians including Martin Hayes, Michael McGoldrick, Mary Coughlan and Lunasa, in addition to performing with Donal Lunny and for President Mary Macaleese. My thanks to Jacquelyn who kindly included my name amongst the acknowledgements in the liner notes.
