Just received the first main review for ‘Contemporary Traditional Irish Guitar’ and it is a very positive review from the guitar specialist website

When I received Dave Flynn’s recent disc entitled “Contemporary Traditional Irish Guitar” I honestly didn’t know what to expect. Driven by my curiosity, I listened to the album immediately. Nothing could have prepared me for the innovative, soothingly pastoral music that washed over me. The works, arranged and composed by Flynn, are a unique and truly satisfying blend of traditional Irish melodies and harmonies, gently delivered in a contemporary style vaguely similar to new-age fingerstyle guitar. At a glance, the specific nature of the album title might seem to suggest that there won’t be very much variety in the music, but the truth is that each work is unique and the album is a journey through a diverse collection of compositions. Resting comfortably between the worlds of classical guitar and popular music, this album has a distinctly universal appeal. If you’re not already intrigued, try listening to one track, I can almost promise that you will want to buy this disc just to hear them all. © Timothy Smith
