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.
We made a stop on the west coast to see one of the new generation trad players, Kieran Munnelly, who met us at an art museum in Bellmullet, County Mayo. He was so much fun to hang out with, and had great stories to go with his great tunes.
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
