TO BRIT­TANY AND BE­YOND

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - Music Reviews -

The mir­a­cle of cross-fer­til­i­sa­tion is cel­e­brated by Mu­sic Net­work’s au­tumn tour: a road trip that os­ten­si­bly am­bles from Bal­lyvour­ney to Clif­den, but in fact takes in a few more ex­otic des­ti­na­tions along the way, with tunes bor­rowed from Brit­tany, east­ern Europe and In­dia. Jean-Michel Veil­lon (above) pi­o­neered wooden flute play­ing in Bre­ton mu­sic and Emer May­ock mar­ries ex­traor­di­nar­ily in­no­va­tive tune com­po­si­tion with a gor­geously clean-lined flute style. This tour cap­tures their shared ap­petite for wed­ding the past with the present.
