Reviews for Top of Coom Album

“Conal takes the basic elements of traditional music and forges them into a personal style, which, once heard, is unforgettable. His fast, rhythmically precise flute-playing has an earthy raucous tone reminiscent of the saxophone and is driven by a spirit from the true heart of traditional music.” Journal of Music

“I remember the precise time and location when I first heard Conal Ó Gráda's first album, The Top of Coom. Some very good musical recordings express their genius in a subtlety which takes repeated listening and a deep knowledge of the musical context of the album to truly comprehend. Not so with The Top of Coom; it grabbed my ears the second I first heard it, and immediately changed my mind about the kind of sounds and rhythm that it was possible to produce on a wooden flute.”
