Live at the Steeple Sessions in Irish Times’ Pick of the Year

Irish Times writer Siobhán Long has selected Toner Quinn and Malachy Bourke’s debut album Live at the Steeple Sessions among her pick of 2013’s new Irish traditional music releases – and in the good company of Chris Wood, Liz Carroll, Emer Mayock, Mick O’Brien and Aoife Ní Bhriain.

‘…bare-boned fiddle duo Toner Quinn and Malachy Bourke brought it all back home (or at least back to church) with their luminous Live At The Steeple Sessions,’ writes Long, adding that her selection of new releases are ‘rich pickings in lean times.’
