Traditional Irish Music
Our track of the week comes from The Sugar Loaf which is the debut recording by Manchester fiddler Kevin Madden. An All-Ireland senior fiddle champion from 1996 he would not be a recognised name as such on the traditional music scene outside of his hometown. As a young musician he was influenced by early recordings of Kathleen Collins, Liz Carroll, Tommy Maguire, Finbarr Dwyer, Joe Cooley and others and their imprint on his own style and approach is evident on tracks like Major Harrisons/Black Pat's.
