“This album has been the culmination of a long journey for me with the seeds sown during a musical collaboration with my producer John Tonks ten years ago”, said Eimear from London where she is now based since completing her degree at the Trinity College of Music “As a classical and Irish flautist, it was important to me to bring both influences to life on this album, such is my passion for each. The album reflects the musical journey I have taken between the two worlds and looks to bring them uniquely together.”

“There is a great genre mix here and I genuinely believe there is something for everyone on this album. I have always wanted to break down the barriers of people’s perceptions of music whether it is classical, traditional or pop – it’s all good music!” Eimear McGeown
