How to Tune a Fish

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Chris Nickson
Beoga's music is some of the friendliest to come out of Ireland and their fifth album continues the tradition they've established. It seduces with its easy, merry charm, but does add a few strange things from left field in order not to be completely straightforward, such as the touch of clavinet funk that spices up the second half of "Minute 5."

It seduces with its easy, merry charm, but does add a few strange things from left field in order not to be completely straightforward, such as the touch of clavinet funk that spices up the second half of "Minute 5."

Niamh Dunne is a singer of excellent emotion, whether laying down some country goodness on Rick Danko's "Home Cookin'" or giving a rising ache to "Our Captain Calls All Hands" or "Woman of No Place."

Even if it's nothing groundbreaking, there's an abundance of open-hearted joy here, both for the players and the listeners.
