“an unexpected treasure… an outstanding recording” Irish Music Magazine

 ‘top ten trad albums of 2009’ Folk World

“Steph Geremia… betrays more than a trace of the accent of her adoptive home place. Her sprightly, breathy style pays homage to the great Peter Horan and that buoyant Sligo flute style to which she has been inexorably drawn.” The Irish Times

A fantastic debut from flautist Steph Geremia. Featuring a stellar line up of guest musicians: Johnny ‘Ringo’ McDonagh (bodhran), Michael Rooney (harp), Brendan O’Regan (bouzouki), Jim Higgins (percussion), Alan Kelly (accordion), Tola Custy (fiddle) and Matt Griffin (guitar). The Open Road is considered as one of the essential Traditional Irish Flute albums of recent times.
