Pure And Sweet Clare Music
Clare Accordion is Seamus Walshe’s third Irish accordion music recording to date. It features fourteen popular jigs, reels and hornpipes. All tunes are traditionally Irish, originating from all over Ireland including Cork, Wexford, Sligo, Clare and Cavan.
See the following reviews for the buzz on this CD:
“Clare Accordion is a joy to listen to, easy and uncontrived with melody and rhythm esplicitly prioritised. Outstanding among the four hornpipe sets are The Stage/Queen of the West and Mulqueeny’s/The Wanderer.”
NUALA O’CONNOR - IRISH TIMES - August 23rd 1996.
“Seamus Walshe is joined by some of Ireland’s best known traditional musicians and being in such illustrious company could phase others - the intimacy of Seamus Walshe’s Irish accordion music playing still wins through. A Clare man playing in a simple, uncluttered accordion style Clare Accordion has a purity and honesty that befits somebody completely at home with their music.”

I have this CD and recommend it too. Seamus’ playing is heavenly - clean and with a lilt rarely heard from a box player (it reminds me of good fiddling). The backup is solid too, especially from guitarist Mark Kelly.
