“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
