Renowned UK music magazine The Wire has also made favorable mention of the duo’s work, described by The Irish Times as “spirited yet spacious, lithe and languorous”. The Wire’s releases of the year for 2013, as featured in the Rewind issue 359, were compiled from the individual votes of the magazine’s staff and contributors. Peter Meanwell listed Live at the Steeple Sessions by fiddle duo Toner Quinn and Malachy Bourke, released on Ergodos Records.
