Turas Ceoil means a musical journey, a title that aptly captures the essence of this album which pays homage to the roots of the tradition, with tunes from as far back as the eighteenth century, while also looking to the future with new compositions by Ó Murchú.
The colourful CD booklet includes 24 pages of information about the tunes as well as photos of the musicians.
Marcas Ó Múrchú is a master of the rolling Sligo, Leitrim, Roscommon style of flute-playing. Turas Ceoil is his second album. His first, Ó Bhéal go Béal, was released in 1997.
