Music For The Set


As Johnny's fame has spread, so too has the music from Sliabh Luachra. This is due in large part to the work of Johnny O'Leary, also of players such as Jackie Daly. Other musicians technically non-natives have nailed their colours to the Sliabh Luachra mast. They take not just the tunes particularly the polkas and slides typical of the area - but also the attitudes. There is a great deal more to music that a mere collection of notes. Johnny O'Leary is the real deal and embodies this principle. He was born and raised in the area and still plays regularly for dances in his community. This is the first time this classic recording has appeared on CD.
