Ireland Journal

……“With “Half Moon” the band now have a CD which creates a solid impression of how well adjusted to playing together these three musicians are, and with what immense joy and enthusiasm they go about their art. It is a pleasure that the songs are not just the usual “worn out Camels”, but original and rarely heard material is favored, complimented by some successful self penned compositions from Aaron Shirlow.”

Access Live-music-magazine

……“This very diverse, elegantly arranged and excellently produced Irish music CD has put the trio Midnight Court firmly on their legs. Eleven tracks with a distinctive feeling for melodies and much care to detail. Never a dull moment.”

Music Week

……“With a lovely swing the band revives traditional Jigs and Reels to a new life. The CD has some beautiful own compositions from Aaron Shirlow, like the contemplative ballad “Home to Antrim” as well as interpreted titles from the American Folk song collector Jean Ritchie and one from Canadian songwriter Stan Rogers. With great pleasure and love for the tradition, Midnight Court have created an Album of sensitive moods between melancholy and a cheerful liveliness.”

Musik Woche

……"The trio with singer and guitarist Aaron Shirlow, multi instrumentalist Bernd Lüdtke (fiddle, bouzouki, banjo, percussion) and Tipperary champion Noel Minogue on accordian, make a convincing debut here, producing perfectly played music together with a tastefully selected repertoire. The band with its high energy treatment brings old traditional jigs and reels back to life, which makes for an alltogether enjoyable and exciting experience."
