Profile - John Carty

There is no doubt that John Carty can be described as one of our greatest living traditional musicians on the circuit at the moment. His roots go back a long way from an upbringing in London where he was born and where he began his musical adventure. His father was a member of the Glenside Ceili Band in London in the early '60's where they played extensively in London and the…

A tip for the timber-killing winter ahead.

Bought one of these, and it arrived today:

Dulahan Irl - Airs & Gracenotes

Instruments have been put away in preparation for home, yet something says the night is not quite over. Fond memories linger of such nights when you may have a solo fiddle or accordian. Maybe someone doing some backing with guitar, maybe not. There is…

Album review - At First Light / Idir

At First Light are back in fine form with their second album Idir, released close to six years after their debut release. 

The band was established in 2001 when ‘Lúnasa’ founders John McSherry and Michael McGoldrick released their critically acclaimed collaborative album, ‘At First Light’. The line up has changed since then with the addition of Uilleann piper and bodhrán…

This from Riyaz Shaikh reporting on the Saturday slow session at the New York Irish Center in Long Island City:

Hi folks,
