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

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.
