Music

Press


Below are some press comments we received over the years;

"Tonight almost a moon after a blurry night in Clonakilty, I find this lovely, haunting music in my possession. "Dreamcraft" .... I detect
influences........ The Waterboys, Scullion ..., Kate Bush, and the undeniable flavour of West Kerry...Ballyvourney ...and so on.
Enchanted." (Collette Olney, Dec 2004)

"Dreamcraft is great for a sense of heart that rides all the way from the most humorous to the most pensive of musical moods. If you like
your folk music unexpectedly diversified yet intertwined intimately with the tradition, shuffle on over to their Web site and order this CD."
(Green man review, May 2004)

"Last night we heard Dreamcraft, a Dutch girl and an Australian man, play jigs and reels and sing sad, ancient airs; and they were magic."
(Irish Examiner. 18/8/2003)

"I enjoyed this CD immensely. The band is aptly named for it's elaborations on the themes of fantasy and dream." (Green man review,
2002)

“Dreamcraft’s spirited music has wooed audiences during a world tour throughout Europe, Asia and Australia, including a session for
our very own Hollywood star, Russell Crowe.” ( Mt. Buller Festival Brochure, March 2001.)

“Dreamcraft, with some of the most original material to come out of the Irish folk scene in the last few years, continue to amaze as they tour
with their exquisite blend of poetic, self penned songs, contemporary folk songs and fiddle tunes. “ ( Manning River Times, January 2001.)

“With it’s emphasis on Gary’s originals and the band’s creative and tasteful arrangements, ‘ Echoes of Ancient Songs ’ is undeniably
Dreamcraft's best recording yet.” (Dutch Music Journal, January 2000.)

“Dreamcraft’s pub gigs feature traditional Irish fiddle tunes, contemporary songs, as well as their own self penned material. The discerning
listener will recognize the power of Dreamcraft’s original songs" (Medicine Music, January 1999.)

This press is all for the band Dreamcraft of which Gary was one of the duo and the writer responsible for all the original material. - www.garsong.com
