Irish & Celtic Instrumentals
Style: Irish / Celtic instrumentals
This CD features 12 Irish & Celtic traditional favorites,
in beautiful & tasteful instrumental arrangements.
Acoustic guitars, Irish flutes, Pennywhistle, violin,
piano, accordion and various percussion make up a nicely
balanced, rich but still understated, production.
Bjørn Lynne set to work producing this album after
spending time in the Irish countryside (more precisely
along the Southern coast of Ireland) in 2007. No detail
was spared in the arrangements or production. Bjørn
himself plays guitars, bass and keyboards, while Steinar
Borvik plays various Irish flutes, Nicolae Bogdan on accordian
and violin, and Jeremy Sherman on Dobro and Slide guitar.
If you would like a CD that sets an Irish, Celtic mood
but is not overwhelming or shouting, this should be a
Bjørn Lynne is a composer, performer, producer
who has also previously produced music with an Irish and
Celtic flavor. Check out his previous CD albums "Witchwood",
"Wizard of the Winds", "Return to Witchwood"
and others (all can be found at CDBaby).
Bonus content: Play-along versions:
As a bonus feature, this CD contains 12 additional CD-tracks
after the main 12 tracks, and the additional tracks are
all 12 tracks again, without the main lead/solo instruments.
This makes the bonus tracks great for singing-along or
playing-along with the tracks, great for learning to play,
or simply to enjoy a subtle Irish / Celtic background
mood, without outstanding lead instruments. When you remove
the main lead instrument from a production, it sheds a
whole new light on the composition and gives a unique
and enjoyable insight into the "workings" of
the music, behind the scenes so to speak. I hope you will
find this bonus material enjoyable.
Including the bonus tracks, the CD contains 24 audio
tracks and is filled to the very technical limit of how
much music you can put on a CD - about 1 hour 20 minutes.
