Press Reviews

Folk Roots

From County Clare comes as, complete a flautist, as you're likely to hear in the shape of Eamonn Cotter. He is probably best known as the flute player with the band Shaskeen, which he joined in 89, and after several recordings with the band, this is his first solo album. All the tracks are traditional and include such favourites as The Sunshine Hornpipe, The Acrobat and The Souvenir. Personal standout tracks, however are the slow airs Easter Snows and Bruach na Carraige Baine. If you are apprehensive about listening to a whole album of flute music: don't be. This is a delightful album of traditional Irish music with no gimmicks, played by a master of his craft. Alan Brown

Irish Music Magazine

When listening to his debut solo album the Clare style is especially noticeable on Mary O'Neill's and The Stoney Steps. Easter Snows highlights his slow air playing, a seldom exposed item in the repertoire. Eamonn himself breathes magic into every flurry and quaver and his tasteful playing makes this CD a feast of riches to be sampled again and again. John O'Regan

Folk Roots

Eamonn Cotter is a musician well steeped in the music of his native County Clare . His crisp flute playing has lift and drive, yet he can play an air with all the grace and care they need. A nice selection of reels. Jigs, hornpipes and slow airs makes for some very enjoyable listening and should be an inspiration for up-and-coming fluters. Joe Crane

The Irish Times

Eamonn Cotter will be best known as a member of Shaskeen and shows himself here to be a solo flute player of the highest order. One of Cotter's many talents is to sensitively exploit the mood of a particular tune, memorably on the reels, Lady Gordon's/Lord Gordon's and on two very different airs, Easter Snows, mellow and impeccably phrased and Bruach na Carraige Baine, reedy and plaintive. Nuala O'Connor
