Len & Brian's CDs
In Two Minds (2012)
The Road Taken (2015)
You'll have a job to find versions of these songs that are sung better, and the greatness that the
combination of these two singers gives these songs makes [In Two Minds] a real treat. I bet
they're good live!
- The Living Tradition
[In Two Minds] is an understated simple please that is reminiscent of opening a book - turning
the page, unable to put it down, until you have digested its every word and only then being able
to close the cover; but read it again you must! ... ... it's like a treasure that has been intricately
designed like a jig saw puzzle - every piece fits.
- Irish Music Magazine
Anyone who figures they've cracked the essence of sean-nůs might do well to savour the hairpin
bends that shape this vigorous and invigorating collection... ... The two singers' phrasing in such
close concert that one would assume they were blood relations. For listeners and singers with a
yen for seeing the familiar through a sparkling new, spit-polished lens, In Two Minds should be in
pole position on any playlist.
- The Irish Times
In Two Minds is a CD collaboration between singing legend Len Graham and young lion Brian ” hAirt.
Both are brilliant singers, and this album not only offers great music but a rare insight into a special musical
bond...... the great mutual sympathy between the two men is apparent throughout this... ... gripping, well-
- The Irish Echo
[The Road Taken] Graham and ” hAirt share a remarkable instinct for phrasing, their voices coalescing
with the ease of singers who've been in concert with one another from the cradle.
