The Spirit of Ireland is a CD  containing 28 Classic Irish Instrumentals described by one critic as a cross between James Last and Phil Coulter. It’s the work of multi-Instrumentalist Matt Cunningham. Matt, a true ambassador of Irish Music shows on this album a side to his music that could never be overshadowed in the eclectic nature of his performances. Remembering who we are and where we came from holds for the Irish a special importance, for many the music on this album will act as a window to another time, a living history. In a world of convenience and modern technology this music remains unscathed by passing time, untarnished by modernity. It is simple, sparse and undemanding but yet rich in exuberance and experience it captures the great feeling and deep understanding Matt has for his music.
