More Tunes from the Goodman Manuscripts CD by Mick O'Brien, Emer Mayock and Aoife Ní Bhriain


More Tunes from the Goodman Manuscripts is the second album from the virtuoso trio of Mick O’Brien (uilleann pipes/flute/whistle), Emer Mayock (flute/whistle/pipes) and Aoife Ní Bhriain (fiddle, viola, concertina). This exciting new recording showcases a compelling selection from over one thousand tunes notated by James Goodman (1828-96) in the mid-19th century.

'This second collection is a repository of enormous beauty and depth as it turns its attention to some of the more unusual Goodman tunes, and revels in their diversity. Every note and ornamentation is precisely judged' - Siobhán Long, The Irish Times

'[T]his is a rich and magnificent collection of music ... and deserves a wide listenership' - Adrian Scahill, The Journal of Music

Having received a TG4 Gradam Ceoil Award in 2014 for their debut musical collaboration, Tunes from the Goodman Manuscripts, the trio returns once more to this iconic collection for inspiration. This time however, there has been a development in their musical approach. The resulting sound is, in places, quite different from the previous recording. Some more unusual items have been unearthed this time around and the musical arrangements vary in scale and complexity.

Listen to Track 01 (Johnny is gone to France/Highlanderʼs Kneebuckle/Lady OʼBrien):

Like its predecessor, More Tunes from the Goodman Manuscripts offers further insight into the traditional music of Pre-Famine Ireland. Containing everything from lesser known versions of tunes in the modern repertoire, to tunes unique to the Goodman Collection this album is a must-listen for any Traditional Irish Music enthusiast.

This album is intended for the serious listener of Irish traditional music. But happily, it can be enjoyed by just about everyone else too. The playing from each of the three artists is absolutely top notch... - TradConnect

 The melodic playing of Emer Mayock has placed her at the forefront of traditional Irish music. - AllMusic

[Mick O'Brien's] traditional style shows great delicacy and subtlety, strong in rhythm and enlivened by his unique inflections and nuances, his performances always throw new light on even the most familiar tune. - East Coast Pipers
