Jackie Daly and Matt Cranitch

Jackie Daly, “probably the best accordionist in Ireland” (New York Times), and Matt Cranitch, “a major force in Irish music” (The Rough Guide to Irish Music), are among the foremost interpreters of the rich musical tradition of Sliabh Luachra. Their 2010 recording “The Living Stream”, which draws very much from this unique cultural area on the borders of northwest Cork and east Kerry, is deemed “a treasure” by Irish Music Magazine.

Through their respective performances over many years, Jackie Daly (accordion) and Matt Cranitch (fiddle) have established enviable individual reputations in the world of Irish traditional music. Together however, the vibrant music that they create displays an additional collaborative dimension, something which attests in a very real manner to the continuing relevance of ‘the living stream’ of traditional music in Ireland today. In concert, they will showcase the Sliabh Luachra tradition, with its special repertoire of tunes as well as its very distinctive style of playing.
