The long-awaited solo album by Anthony Quigney is finally here and will be released at the Ennis Trad Fest on Nov 14th. Anthony has been a member of the world-renowned Kilfenora Ceili Band for almost 3 decades and has recorded 7 studio albums with the band in that time.
This cheekily titled album, “Breath-Taking”, alludes to the countless breaths that Anthony has taken to make music on the flute, in a career that has already spanned over 40 years.
In this collection of his favourite tunes both old and new he draws on the influences of his native Clare and further a field while playing them in his own unique style. Staying true to the Tradition while exploring new ground is at the heart of Anthony’s musical philosophy and is reflected throughout Breath-Taking.
He is joined on this recording by friends and family. He is delighted and proud to have his son Aidan on piano in his first ever studio recording while his sister Marie joins him for 2 selections on piano. He is also joined by Conal O’Kane of Goitse fame on guitar, TG4 Young musician of the year 2020, Sharon Howley on cello, Eimear Howley on fiddle and Brian O’Grady’s on Double Bass are all Kilfenora Ceili Band mates and add wonderful colour. And Dermott Sheedy’s bodhrán rhythms pulse throughout.
