THIS Colin Farrell!

This is Colin Farrell. No, not THAT Colin Farrell. THIS Colin Farrell. This lad is a brilliant fiddler and flautist. He has a new album out, Make a Note, which is actively being considered here on LI for several different Livies–our annual musical awards for the best of the best. Those Awards will be coming out in early January. But, now you get to hear this! Colin sits in on fiddle and tours frequently with Lunasa. He subs for Sean Smyth. And, he is in constant demand all over the world as a master musician on both fiddle and flute. One of the best young players in the business. Here we feature an appearance at Celtic Connections. That is his pal from the old Grada days, Alan Doherty sharing the flute work. The best bodhran player in the business, John Joe Kelly sits in with Tony Byrne on guitar and Jonny Hulme on banjo. We like this piece because it shows you Colin at work on both fiddle AND low whistles. Stunning. Enjoy!!
