Album Reviews...

"Garry's exciting and highly accomplished technique is perfectly showcased throughout this vibrant CD. I really enjoy listening to this album, great music from a great player. Well done Garry!"
Gerry O'Connor

"His playing is not so much a discovery as a revelation. This is a wonderful gift for Irish music lovers. We are fans!"
American Public Radio

"Garry O'Meara is set for a long run. He is right at the top in terms of the terrific banjo players out in just the last few years. We've heard lots of new banjo players, Garry is the best of the bunch. This is a gorgeous thing of a new album. Get this album!"
Chicago Irish American News

"This is a terrific new musician on our radar. We first saw him in the Brock McGuire Band, and now we have his first solo album, Pickin' Time. Brill! This guy can play, really play! A varied, highly successful debut. Stunning, actually. He is an immediate contender for Newcomer of the Year, even Musician of the Year!"
