Ronan Browne & Peter O'Loughlin
The South West Wind




Claddagh Records


Irish Traditional

Year of production:



Two musical generations meet when Peter O'Loughlin, fiddler and flute player, joins forces with Ronan Browne, a young piper and flute player. In a brilliant exposition of contemporary traditional music, the influences are largely those of west Clare, and the spirit of Willie Clancy, Peter’s friend and Ronan’s inspiration, permeates the album.
