New book on Sligo Fiddling
A new book of Sligo Fiddling called "Fiddlers of Sligo" has just been launched by accordion player Daithí Gormley and fiddler Oisin MacDiarmada. It contains 22 remarkable Sligo fiddlers including Michael Coleman, James Morrison and Paddy Killoran, Joe O’Dowd, Fred Finn, John Joe Gardiner and some rarely heard but equally virtuosic Fiddlers too such as Tommy Flynn, Michael Joe McDonagh and Kathleen Harrington.
The book includes transcriptions of 52 tunes from the recorded repertoire of these players, along with extensive commentary about the Sligo fiddle style and it’s exponents.
