Posted on May 22, 2020 at 16:30 1 Comment

This is an interesting track from Dublin duo Varo featuring Lucie Azconaga on fiddle and Consuelo Nerea Breschi on vocals. They perform traditional Irish songs and tunes with arrangement influences from the baroque and classical traditions, weaving around the melodies with harmonies, drones and countermelody.

Lucie, from France,…

Album Review : Florence Fahy / Tunes from the Flaggy Shore

Posted on April 11, 2018 at 13:30 0 Comments

It is no surprise that one of the best traditional albums of late, once again features concertina. This debut release by Co Clare musician Florence Fahy stands shoulder to shoulder with the best that Clare has to offer. The concertina more than any instrument seems to capture the essence of the music, and Florence Fahy, now…


Album Review : Cormac Begley

Posted on August 2, 2017 at 10:00 0 Comments

The seeds for this remarkable album were sown many years ago when Cormac Begley recorded a duet album with Jack Talty called Na Fir Bolg.

That album, recorded in St. Nicholas Collegiate Church, Galway, was a revelation.  For this solo outing, Cormac is back in the same church with Jack Talty on the recording and mixing…

I got an email saying that you were shutting down, but there's no mention of it on the main page. 

Is it true?

Hi Tony, I posted a small video on Tradconnect and it has been pending approval for a long time now. Is there something I need to know? I heard "Off to Dublin in the green" from the Irish Rovers who were very popular in Canada and contributed to spreading Irish music throughout the Country. When I played it, I mentioned a bit about the story of the song and I only played it as entertainment. Could you please advise> Thanks. The site has been growing very well and this is quite an accomplishment. Congratulations and keep up the good work.
