About Noel Hill
"Ireland is full of great musicians but only a few set standards." -PJ Curtis, Notes From the Heart
Noel Hill has taken the humble concertina from the house dances of County Clare on the west coast of Ireland to stages throughout the world. The concertina, like Irish music itself, is currently enjoying a tremendous increase in popularity, and Noel Hill is at the forefront of this movement, not only as an awe-inspiring performer but as teacher and a well respected authority on Ireland's music.
In his hands the concertina is a new instrument, yet resounds with the integrity of generations, for Noel Hill makes the music new not through experimentation in other genres, but through consummate exploration and illumination from within traditional Irish music.
...Ireland's greatest concertina player
--Seamus Ennis, piper, singer, broadcaster
...Noel Hill's fame preceeds him in the form of Albums and broadcasts that serve as a forum for his talents.
--The New York Times
...Noel Hill pushes the possibilities for our music beyond all expectation. What better thing than this could be said of a musician?
--Tony MacMahon, musician, T.V. producer/broadcaster
There is little doubt that in music there is a special place for the concertina when so brilliantly executed by Noel Hill.
