His piping is strongly influenced by the 'travelling style' of piping, which employs legato and staccato techniques, elements which are heard to great effect in his playing. Here are some reviews "Martin Nolan is a noted piper and composer whose openness and receptiveness to new ideas has taken him and his pipes around the world". ---- The Sunday Tribune (Ireland) "And then there's Martin Nolan's pipering pyrotechnics: his fire and accuracy put him on a par with the best of players. The playing throughout this debut recording displays a finely judged mix of skill and excitement". ---- Folk Roots "Bright Silver Dark Wood is the work of a creative genius who has taken his work farther than most of his ilk. A body of work to linger with and drink longingly from, Bright Silver Dark Wood is an aural feast of musical soul food". ---- Irish Music Magazine
