This Just In ...
This week, The web site IRISH AMERICAN NEWS piped in with their wonderful review of "Songs From Before" in their Arts & Music section with the following quote:
..."it was with great delight that I listened to Fionnuala Sherry’s release. Her fiddle style is flowing and lyrical, strong but very, very smooth. I enjoyed the heck out of this CD and so did some of my most valued customers, who were also delightfully surprised. Matter of fact, on this CD is my all time favorite instrumental rendition of “Minstrel Boy.” I don’t say that lightly". - Irish American News
