Lawrence O’Hearn is a virtuoso of the tin whistle and baroque oboe. His long musical background has taken him from Ontario to Ireland, from Brittany to Québec, where in recent years he has dedicated himself to learning the repertoire and style of Québec traditional music. With none other than André Marchand, he has offered, not only to enthusiasts of traditional music but also to music buffs of all types, a magnificent CD on which he bridges the gap between Ireland and Québec through his refined interpretation of both Gaelic slow airs and lively jigs and reels. This album could very well be the surprise of the year within folk-trad music circles as well as for music lovers everywhere.
