Davy Rice and Denis Sweeney

Davy Rice and Denis Sweeney started out playing together in the students’ céilí band at teacher training college in Belfast. Later founded their own band (Ros na Rí Ceili Band) and played together for years before their musical paths diverged. Denis stayed with céilí and also taught fiddle, while Davy played with folk groups and built fiddles, but their mutual detailed study of the old recordings of Coleman and Gillespie probably influenced their style of playing to this day. Here are 10 tracks from each player, with an eclectic mix of music from Ireland, Scotland and Europe - a celebration of two master fiddlers from County Antrim.

Sean - if you edit the track listing to remove the tune categories - reels, jigs, etc - it will allow the tune title to link to the sheet music.
