ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
For many years, Matt Cranitch (fiddle) and Jackie Daly (accordion) have been among the foremost interpreters of the rich Sliabh Luachra tradition of instrumental music. The unique cultural area on the borders of northwest Cork and east Kerry provides a special repertoire of tunes as well as a very distinctive style of playing, and has long been a source of inspiration for both Jackie and Matt. Through their respective performances over many years, they 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.

The Living Stream draws very much from the Sliabh Luachra tradition, and features fourteen tracks, mostly unaccompanied. However, on a number of selections, accompaniment is provided by Paul De Grae (guitar) and Bríd Cranitch (piano). This recording, which attests in a very comprehensive manner to the continuing relevance of the ‘living stream’ of traditional music in Ireland today, has been supported by The Arts Council of Ireland through the DEIS Scheme for the Traditional Arts.

In the booklet accompanying the album, Jackie Small of the Irish Traditional Music Archive, states the following:

"On this CD, two of the most prestigious performers of Irish traditional music, Matt Cranitch and Jackie Daly, join together to celebrate their common musical heritage – the Sliabh Luachra tradition. Each in his own right has had a long and distinguished career in Irish music; each has left a lasting influence on that tradition. ... We hear sparkling dance tunes in all the favourite rhythms of Sliabh Luachra – polkas, jigs, slides, hornpipes and reels. An integral part of the Sliabh Luachra tradition was a wonderfully rich culture of playing slow airs, and both the musicians on this CD are acknowledged masters of the slow air. This CD contains a superb example of slow-air playing from each of them."

no frills, pure tunage
Great stuff! Even though Matt & Jackie are old fellas, they play very well indeed. I like the fact that there's piano and/or stringed instrument accompaniment on only 3 tracks; the rest is just fiddle & accordion playing on its own-- the way it ought to be, more often.
