The Living Stream

Duo recording of Sliabh Luachra music from Matt Cranitch and Jackie Daly. Eleven unaccompanied fiddle/accordion tracks, with Paul De Grae adding guitar on a set of hornpipes, and with Paul joined by Brid Cranitch on piano for a set of barndances and a set of reels.


It was launched at the “Willie Clancy” week 3 weeks ago.

Matt and Jackie will be doing some Music Network touring in mid Sept in Ireland - with John Faulkner along for what promise to be a very merry ride -
Tis a lovely album and a must have for we Sliabh Luachrites.
No need to say that the pairing of Jackie and Matt is brilliant, the title spot on, and one things that somewhere in that great Session in the Sky, Seamus Creagh is looking on with approbation.

This is a remarkable recording, particularly well engineered resulting in near perfect balance between the instruments.

Blackwater Polkas

There are only two polkas listed in the liner notes.

And on the recording itself. BTW, these link to the Avondale Reel, not to any polkas.
