Reviews for The Loom

"5 Stars. The possibility that we are in a golden age of traditional music, is reinforced by the release of Liam O’Connor’s exceptional solo album The Loom." The Irish Times

"The Loom is a memorable album, an engaging, thoughtful achievement. O’Connor continues to be an important creator at the heart of Irish fiddle playing." The Journal of Music

"‘The Loom’ is Irish traditional music played as a high art, with ‘balls out’ execution and high wire fiddle playing of the highest order, by one of the best ever players at the very top of his game." Ciarán Ó Maonaigh
