Reviews for Silver and Wood

                                                           “Added to the best folk albums of the year is the debut from Jacquelyn Hynes, ‘Silver and Wood’. This talented multi-instrumentalist shows she can play at an ideal tempo, allowing each lovely note, phrase and melody to breathe. A fine debut album.” Telegraph Folk Music ★★★★☆

“The strength of this album (and there are many) is that it brings Hynes’ innate sense of innovation to the table. Ethereal and other-worldly, but also attractively contemporary”  Irish World

“Full of innovation and imagination … bewitching. A cracking debut album”  Irish Post

“She plays flute the way Ben Webster plays sax – all air and space and breathy urgency. Some cleverly constructed pieces here too including the superb “Gini’s Tune” ”  Sunday Express

“Solid Celtic folk with many imaginative surprises.” R2 Magazine ★★★★☆

“A set of remarkable recordings with Greensleeves and She Moves Through the Fair being stand-out tracks” Musician Magazine

“It immediately reminded me of some of the early Altan CDs like Red Crow; it is that good.  A fine debut CD from a talented lady”  Shire Folk

“Jacquelyn Hynes is an eye-opening musician … every fibre of her being is used in making sure that what you hear, you fall hopelessly in admiration with. ” Soundandvision
