Peter Lennon’s Rocky Road to Dublin - again
This is a good film which has been discussed here before. There is a short scene in a pub with a fiddler who, to me, looks like a young Seán Keane. In another discussion it was proposed this may be Tommy Peoples. Is there a definitive answer? I was thrown by his style which doesn’t sound a bit like the Keane that I am familiar with (whose fiddle playing sounds very much like a set of pipes). I think Keane joined the Chieftains in 1968, the film was shot in 1967.
The DVD release has a ‘making of’ mini doc that includes interviews with Lennon and Raoul Coutard, even some footage of Lennon arguing with Jean-Luc Goddard at the closing of Cannes (!). Highly recommended.
