“ The Monks of the Screw / North Cork’s Finest”
We welcome the very popular Newmarket fiddle players Eóin Stan O’Sullivan back to the Sliabh Luachra Heritage Centre Scartaglin on February 22. He will bring the story of the famous North Cork band “The Monks of the Screw “ who formed in the mid nineties. From playing regularly in Scully’s Bar Newmarket this group made 3 recordings but more importantly they met and sourced music from the older musicians of the area . It is to their credit that many tunes versions played today were saved from players who have since passed away and would have been lost . The band had a few line up changes but their sound at the core was pure Sliabh Luachra and always stayed pure to that style Eóin Stan
