Daithi Sproule & Laura MacKenzie | The Pinery


Dáithí Sproule, well-known for his pioneering guitar styles, deep knowledge of Irish song and his place in the internationally acclaimed Irish supergroup Altan, is a brilliant musician and virtual font of cultural knowledge and lore. Laura MacKenzie has been
recognized as a master folk artist, and has received numerous honors and awards for her dedication and work in traditional music. Sproule and MacKenzie have been making music together since the days of the Northern Star Ceili Band, and now offer their first duo recording, featuring a rich gamut of traditional Irish and Scottish music plus Sproule’s original compositions.

“The Pinery” is truly a duet creation, throughout the instrumentals (airs, reels, jigs,
double hornpipes) and the songs. MacKenzie’s arsenal of wind-powered instruments
(flutes, whistles, pipes, and concertina) are all featured, joined by Sproule’s fresh and
innovative guitar accompaniments and solos. "They are both esteemed singers as well, and selections from their treasure trove of traditional song are presented in beautiful arrangements."
