Tony Linnane - who can tell me more?
Based on his classic 1979 recording with Noel Hill & co., I’d say that Tony is probably my favorite fiddle player. I’m sure there are many others who would say the same but there seems to be a surprising lack of public information on the man, not to mention recordings. I am aware of his miscellaneous cameos with Christy Moore ("Iron Behind the Velvet"), Planxty and Kevin Crawford. What am I missing?
I understand he is from Corofin Co Clare. Is he still there? Who did he learn his music from? Please share your stories and insight. Many thanks.
