Scullys Traditional Festival weekend have uploaded this playlist that covers the music of the Sliabh Luachra area in Cork/Kerry. Its features both the old masters as well as the young pretenders to the throne. Bryan O’ Leary, grandson of the legendary Johnny O’ Leary is also in there with a track he gave us around the time of his Gradam Ceoil TG4 award this year. You can read an interview we carried out with him by following this link. Sliablh Luachra has been very much in the spotlight of late with the launch of the Sliabh Luachra Music Trail This area “which straddles the borders of northwest Cork and east Kerry, occupies a unique position in the world of traditional music. It is associated with a specific and idiomatic traditional music style and the Sliabh Luachra Music Trail will celebrate this tradition”.
