Tobar an Cheoil’ is the third collaborative album by Monaghan-born harper Michael Rooney and Sligo-born flutist June McCormack and their duet playing is outstanding, rich, melodic and subtle, with a unique blend of harp and flute.
Tobar an Cheoil’ offers a fourteen-track album with a difference, a mixture of traditional tunes and features twelve of Michael’s original compositions. The album has an unusual variety of tunes, incorporating several reel and jig sets, in addition to newly composed hop-jigs, slip jigs, several airs and planxties by Michael.
