Reviews of A Dossan of Heather
We have been very gratified by the excellent reviews A Dossan has attracted in the folk press, on-line and off. (Only one bad review so far, and we'll let you read that one, too!)
1. The Donegal Fiddle Pages
Reviewed by Larry Sanger, author of this online resource for lovers of Donegal fiddling:
... an important contribution to the literature about Donegal music, being very well-conceived, meticulously researched, and well-executed.
Larry's pages are no longer available, to my knowledge, but here is the text of his review.
2. Stirrings Magazine
From a review in this English regional folk magazine by Raymond Greenoaken (I think he's a fan!):
A Dossan of Heather is a judicious selection of 85 jigs, highlands, airs, hornpipes, germans, reels, slip jigs, marches, polkas, mazurkas and waltzes from the formidable repertoire of tin whistle magus Packie Manus Byrne. If it were only a tune book, it would be interesting enough... but the book is much more than that.
The review is no longer posted on the Stirrings magazine site. But you can read it on our pages (thanks Raymond!)
3. Musical Traditions on-line magazine
The grumpy review! By Tom Walsh. Click, read and smile...
Of course we couldn't let this pass unanswered. Read my devastating riposte (scroll down)!
