Sliabh Luachra concertina players?
Posted 26 January 2012 - 01:40 AM
I've been listening to a lot of Terry Teahan recently, all off the great 'Old Time Irish Music in America' album. It got me on to thinking how the liner notes, as well as other sources, mention the numbers of concertina players in Kerry and Cork around the turn of the century - among them Padraig o'Keeffe, his mother and sister, Johnny Mickey whathisname who influenced Jackie Daly, and others. I'm curious as to what recordings exist of other concertina players from Sliabh Luachra in the first half of the 20th century. Did most of them have the same style as Terry Teahan, I suppose: low on ornamentation, occasional octaves or rhythmic bass notes, good pulse in the bellows. What other players were recorded in that time frame? And for that matter, is there more of Terry Teahan's music out there as well?
