If I had to choose a best album from this year it is without doubt John McSherry's Soma. What an album! John McSherry is an incredible musician and Soma an incredible album, full of passion, originality and imagination. Any lover of Irish music cannot be without this album: it would be sacrilage!!

John McSherry - Soma
Posted by Play.com Reviewer, 25/06/2010 11:42:15
The sheer beauty of the Uilleann pipes and low whistle is bought vividly to life in the hands of John McSherry. No need for flashy statements that leave you thinking I could never play that in a million years. Its not that I am sure he couldnt , its just that McSherry relies on a good tune to carry the story. Ably supported by his talented band Donal OConnor (keyboards and fiddle), Ruben Bada (bouzouki and guitar), Israel Sanchez (drums), Joanne McSherry (fiddle), Francis McIlduff (bodhran) Paul McSherry and Tony Byrne (guitars) this is a tightly controlled vision that includes many elements of well established artists such as The Bothy Band and more recently Lunasa. From the plaintive An Bhean Chaointe and Aisling Gheal to the driving Wave Sweeper the energy does not let up for a minute. Whether utilising a good old fashioned standard like The Rambles Of Kitty or dipping into his own well constructed self penned melodies John provides a more than pleasurable breath of bellows driven air.
