Moving On

"His tunes are melodically rich and inventive, and his arrangements of them are equally so. Even though unaccompanied melody playing on piano is limited to one track, it should nevertheless help to boost the rising profile of Carey as one of Ireland's most versatile, engaging, and rewarding musicians."

Earle Hitchner, Irish Echo, New York.

Aidan O’Hara, Irish Music Magazine.

 

Moving On

"This is a refreshing collection of tunes, composed by Denis Carey and featuring a swathe of the best musicians in the country. The swing of Zöe Conway’s fiddle and Enda Scahill’s banjo on Cajun Céilí are a testament to Carey’s ability to marry a lightness of touch with an acute ear for local accents."

Siobhán Long, Irish Times.
