In November of 2011, Blayne Chastain and I had the opportunity to go to Ireland for 10 days to film flute players for our documentary, “The Keymaster: Patrick Olwell’s Story”. We met and interviewed 14 flute players, traveled over 1,000Km, and had one of the most memorable trips of our lives.
On our second day we had the pleasure of meeting Colm O'Donnell, a self-proclaimed 'hill sheep farmer' who is also one of the most soulful flute players we met. In this clip he not only breathes out a haunting air, he also sings the song that it came from, just lovely.
I hope you enjoy watching and listening, and if you do, please visit our Vimeo link vimeo.com/ondemand/keymaster to watch the trailer. “The Keymaster: Patrick Olwell’s Story” is available there as a download, or on DVD and Blu-ray from irishflutestore.com
