Dermot Byrne and Floriane Blancke indie release ****\r\n\r\n

Bare-boned, spare arrangements that leave nowhere to hide: a brave choice for Altan accordionist Dermot Byrne and Parisian harpist and vocalist, Floriane Blancke, on their duo debut. There's a natural yin and yang to the pairing of box and harp: the muscular core of the former finding a natural foil in the latter. Musettes, waltzes and slow airs are balanced alongside select hornpipes and jigs, with Blancke contributing fine-boned, pristine vocals on the sole French song, La Clairi�re. This fresh collection embraces the baroque in Chris Newman's Sore Point and the panoply of suantra�, geantra� and goltra� (lullabies, happy and sad songs) that form the backbone of traditional music. Byrne and Blancke manage to cleanse palates long jaded by the overdrive of ensembles on full throttle. \r\n
