Sligo Made

CD: $16

“Sligo Made” (Loftus Music LM010) was recorded in County Sligo in the west of Ireland, an area steeped in traditional music. Kevin, the son of Sligo parents and life long afficianado of Sligo music, asked some of his friends, all internationally acclaimed players and all residents of the Sligo area, to join with him in making this CD – Michael Holmes and Brian McDonagh from the renowned Irish band, Dervish; Steve Wickham of the Waterboys; multi instrumentalist, Seamie O’Dowd; fellow Patrick Street member, John Carty; piper Leonard Barry and bodhran player John Joe Kelly. The result is a glorious portrayal of the joy, intimacy and informality of traditional music at its best – a welcome addition to Sligo’s long musical history, and to the Loftus Music catalogue, “Sligo Made”.
