Album Notes
Cincinnati's premier Celtic band celebrates its tenth year by delivering high-energy instrumentals and haunting ballads with a unique and personal style. Fiddler, Susan Cross, is the founder of the Riley School of Irish Music. Cindy Matyi, on flute and concertina, is the founder of the Cincinnati Celtic Music and Cultural Festival and a nationally known Celtic artist whose work is now touring with the American Celtic exhibition. Stephen Matyi, on bouzouki, guitar and banjo, is also well known for his photography of musicians. They are joined by Tim Benson on uillean pipes, flute and whistle, who also plays with the Portersharks and Katie Else, vocals, formerly of Julia's Feathers.

The members of Silver Arm have been regulars in the Southern Ohio Celtic music scene for nearly two decades. Their first CD “The Beechtree” was produced by Ged Foley. They are also featured on a compilation disk in Ireland “Trees Are Life” which is being sold to support reforestation efforts. Their new CD “Never Despair” features lively Irish dance music, beautiful ballads and Swedish and Romanian selections along with the Irish music. And they will also be featured on the new DVD by Jen Delyth "Beyond the Ninth Wave."

quite possibly the best piper in the universe.


Love the music and wonderful cover art!
Enjoyed the music very much ... excelent recording and very inspirational. Love the female voice.

I love this CD and I'm not even a big celtic music fan.
I really can't say anything bad about the CD. The guitar work is excellent. The pipes? really add to the mix. The only thing I would change is the fiddle. In my opinion, it should have been louder.
