“Haunting and wonderful” Telegraph (Folk Albums of the Year)
“Brings Hynes’ innate sense of innovation to the table –
ethereal and other-worldly yet also attractively contemporary” Irish World
Added to the best folk albums of the year is Jacquelyn Hynes Music Silver and Wood. Martin Chilton says: “Jacquelyn Hynes is a talented multi-instrumentalist (piano, saxophone, Melodica, Uilleann pipes and Flute) and the track An Buachaillín Ban is haunting and wonderful. There is a re-working of Greensleeves and on popular reels The Ashplant/Red Haired Lass she shows she can play at an ideal tempo, allowing each lovely note, phrase and melody to breathe. A fine debut album.” ★★★★☆
