Beautiful… Exuberant and lyrical sound… an album so full of melodic warmth that it can barely be contained… one of the most perfect acoustic albums I’ve heard in a while …. a career defining album”

— John Diliberto of Echoes about “The Bog Bodies And Other Stories: Music For Guitar”

 "O'Beirne's 2000 LP Half Moon Bay is beloved for good reason, and i'd highly recommend giving a listen to his latest effort, Swimming The Horses, which was self-released in May 2019. Even for listeners largely uninterested in Irish folk music, "The Last King Of Feothanach" and the alluring title track are beautifully haunting ballads, and O'Beirne has managed to write perhaps the canonical musical setting of James Joyce in "Golden Hair"." - Colorado Springs Independent. ”

An intimate amphitheatre where the gracefulness of O'Beirne's composition finds full expression.”

The instrumentals are out of this world. A self taught master of the 6 and 12 string guitar, the playing of O’Beirne is superlative and subtle beyond words.”

— The Sunday Times

His works are simple, elegiac and exquisitely worded pen pictures of life’s experiences.”

— Rock ‘N’ Reel

Everything he touches resounds to us with an echo of truth and beauty and perfection”

A masterpiece.”

— Folkworld about Half Moon Bay

He’s a lovely singer, a powerful performer and a master musician”

— Evening Herald

While much of his material (Isle of Malachy, Shades of Gloria, Western Highway, The Holy Ground) is best known sung by others, Gerry reclaims his songs. He involves the listener with a gentle intensity that allows the beauty of his melodies to envelop and sweep them along: images abound of mountains and deserts, foreign lands, and County Clare, loves lost and loves won.”

The highlight of the recent Waterboys concerts at the Olympia Theatre was a truly mesmerizing bottleneck guitarist Gerry O’Beirne”

— In Dublin

Material comes from Paul Brady, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Shawn Colvin and Lennon & McCartney, but the highlight is Gerry O’Beirne’s beautiful ‘Half Moon Bay”
