Cobblestone launch for new album by Steve Larkin & Mick Kinsella - 9th October 2015

On Friday 9th October 2015, Steve Larkin and Mick Kinsella will launch their new fiddle and harmonica album at The Cobblestone Bar, in Dublin.  Entry is free and the music will start from 9.30pm.  The liner notes to the album provide some insight to the music.  They say: “Many of the tunes on this album are classics from the traditional music repertoire which we've been playing together for quite a few years now. Over time, we've adapted them to suit the fiddle and harmonica duet sound, by making subtle changes to the melodies or by experimenting with different keys and tunings.”

“Fiddle music and tune versions also feature prominently. Mick's interest traces back to numerous tea-fuelled conversations in the home of the great chromatic harmonica  player Eddie Clarke, who was also a great lover of fiddle music and introduced many fiddle tunes into the harmonica repertoire.”

“There are two new compositions by Mick: 'An Ghaoth sa Bhiabhóg' was composed while transfixed by the mammoth leaves of a rhubarb plant in the ornate gardens of Sham's Palace, Harold's Cross. 'Cornphíopa Shraith Salach' was written on the road to Letterfrack, Co. Galway, amidst the rugged beauty of The Twelve Bens.”
