Liam O’Connor on CD?
I was in Killarney a year or two ago and heard Liam O’Connor on accordion in a session in the Failte Hotel. I was amazed at the speed of his accordion playing, not having heard stuff that fast before. It was enthralling to hear him continually ramp up the speed as he changed key.
Does this kind of ‘speed-accordion’ playing style have a name? Is it rare or common (and I’ve just led a sheltered life)?
Anyway, I’d love to hear this again and would be very greatful if anyone could let me know if there are any CDs of him playing this kind of thing, or anyone else for that matter (though someone else in Kerry advised me that it wasn’t that common).
I’ve just ordered Myriad (Gerry O’Connor - 1998), but someone told me that Liam would have something new out, so anyone know anything about a recent album of his?
