Jackie Daly and Matt Cranitch are acknowledged masters of the rich musical tradition of Sliabh Luachra in the southwest of Ireland. This culturally significant region on the Cork/Kerry border is renowned for its distinctive style of playing and for its repertoire of tunes. Jackie on accordion and Matt on fiddle will be joined by the renowned flute-player, Conal Ó Gráda, whose music brings, not only another perspective, but an added dimension to the ensemble performances.
A very special feature of the night will be the appearance of the award-winning poet Bernard O’Donoghue to read some of his inspiring verse. A native of Sliabh Luachra, he shares with the other three performers a deep love of this unique cultural area.
