No. 1 @ Irish and American Folk Charts in Sept. 2011!
"How to Tune a Fish is a master class in how to make a trad recording that’ll please all comers. Top-drawer musicianship, playful arrangements, gorgeous vocals and of course, lively playing. There’s not a member of the band that’s not at the very pinnacle of their talents. Some of the best music in the world today."
Irish Music Magazine / Seamus Bellamy
"It’s fair to say that nobody does this stuff better at the moment. Beoga deserve a place in my 2011 Top Ten with this release."
Irish Music Magazine / Alex Monaghan
"... Right from the first reel of HOW TO TUNE A FISH you know you’re dealing with something very different. Eclectic, intimidatingly skilled... never a dull moment.”
“Beoga, more than any other band right now bring the fun element to trad and take the snobbery out ...they stretch and bend genre to the nth degree, and it’s sure to cement their reputation as one of the most exciting traditional set-ups in existence. Never mind the fish – I'm hooked.”
Irish World, Madeline O’Connor
“The Co Antrim quintet, fronted by twin button accordions and one female singer/fiddler, are dangerous, devious and a downright delight. Their casually dynamic, tight, unstoppable grooves are driven by their masterful pianist and their All-Ireland Champion bodhran basher.“
The Scotsman, Norman Chalmers
