For the Guitarists - Terrific Interview and Spotlight with Altan’s Daithi Sproule
From Acoustic Guitar Magazine, here:
Obviously, Mr. Sproule’s done a lot more than just Altan, but I don’t know how well known Skara Brae and his recordings with Tommy Peoples, Paddy O’Brien/James Kelly and his other work is amongst ye’s. If you’re not familiar with this stuff, I highly recommend checking it out, along with the very well-known Altan recordings.
He goes into the history of DADGAD and its early adopters in Irish music in the late 60s and early 70s, including Michael O Domnhaill, and what things were like in the Donegal/Tyrone and Dublin music scene at that time. Some lovely self-accompanied singing by an under-appreciated master of the art.
