Product Description


logo-for-products.jpgHowever Long the Day CD 

The players here bring the wisdom of experience to an album of traditional music that will outlive us all. However Long the Day is a recording for ages to come... this is a classic - Seán Laffey, Irish Music Magazine  

Brian Hughes and Dave Sheridan are well-known musicians on the traditional Irish music scene for many years now, having both recorded highly successful albums in the past. 

The warm atmosphere of the recordings, the extremely precise and yet relaxed playing, the synergy between these two experienced and gifted artists all help forge a new milestone in their career - Michele Mele

Widely regarded as one of the best players of his generation, whistle player and uilleann piper, Brian Hughes’ playing has changed the course of whistle playing as we know it and his piping has a style which seems to be uniquely perfect for his understated mastery. 

Fiddle player, Dave Sheridan has also recorded many albums over the last number of years and has become a hugely respected musician at home and abroad, having previously recorded with Ciarán Somers, Brendan McCarthy, Conal Ó Gráda, Colm Murphy and Nell Ní Chróinín to name but a few. 

For this new recording, two incredible traditional musicians have entwined their musical journeys together, and have produced a recording full of sound and soul, mystery and magic, depth and delight.

(T)his album takes its title from an Irish saying that there's always the evening for music and craic, which is amply borne out by the selection of fine tunes here - Alex Monaghan, The Living Tradition
