Original Compositions from a Master Fiddle Player.# Added by Jeremy .
The Department of Music, University College Cork, is delighted to host this exciting initiative by one of the great masters of Irish traditional music, the fiddle player Connie O’Connell. Connie’s teaching has been at the heart of traditional music studies at University College Cork for nearly forty years and his profile as one of Ireland’s leading fiddle players has brought great honour to the University throughout that time.
Here, Connie shares a collection of over sixty recently composed jigs, reels, hornpipes, slides and polkas, and a few of his older compositions which have become popular. We hope the collection will become a valuable source of new traditional music for musicians and scholars, and that the tunes will give pleasure to many players and listeners for years to come.
