"Caoimhín Ó Raghallaigh is not your typical
Irish fiddler nor does he have a standard vision for his
instrument. Removing the fiddle from its traditional
role as a folk vessel and letting it speak purely in
texture, atmosphere and timeless, motivic layers,
conversing as a quality and as a color in a way
that beautifully throws off its ancestry and
stereotype, it is clear that Caoimhín hears
a world unexplored and awaiting"

Tamara Turner, CD Baby, June 2007

"the particular bowing style of Ó Raghallaigh is key,
bringing to their music a now characteristic swing,
and they also regularly teeter intriguingly on the
edge of the melody, allowing it almost disappear...
before satisfyingly reclaiming the ground."

Toner Quinn, JMI, Vol.6 No.4 July-August 2006
