Described by legendary accordion player Joe Burke as a ‘master musician’, Daithí Gormley is widely regarded as one of the finest Button Accordion players of his generation. Steeped in the rich musical heritage of his native county Sligo his, remarkably accomplished, debut album ‘Fiddling without a Bow – Irish Traditional Music on Button Accordion’ brings an expressive mix of old and new tunes played with an attention to detail conduit to past masters of Irish traditional music.

Have been listening to this cd for 2 years, and enjoying every time. Great bounding accompaniment by Catherine McHugh, and superb settings/playing. Does not disappoint.

Re: Fiddling without a Bow—Irish Traditional Music on Button Accordion

I saw ‘fiddling without a bow’ and my mind instantly went to the Leahy’s performance of “Little Ditty” where they just PICK (ditching the bows) almost a whole set. It’s pretty cool. Is that pretty common among fiddlers? Or more like a novelty thing?
