Music

A Snapshot In Time

Donegal sisters Melanie and Paula Houton, are two of the finest musicians of their generation. They bring the traditional pairing of fiddle and flute/whistles to a contemporary audience. On listening to this wonderful debut album the words freshness, finesse, precision and integrity come to mind. They are both masters of their instruments with impeccable taste in their music.
