Duchas D.B. 1003, 1978

A hidden treasure of the Sliabh Luachra discography, this LP was produced by the Kerry CCE and given a relatively limited release in 1978. It features a number of well-known figures of the area, including Nicolas and Anne McAuliffe and John Brosnan, as well as some lesser-known folks. The playing throughout is of a high standard, and, perhaps surprisingly for a CCE production, the Sliabh Luachra character shines through (on some tracks more than others.) All in all, an excellent album, and a valuable snapshot of the state of The Kingdom from bygone days.

Many thanks to Friend of Sliabh Luachra Ray Dempsey for making this long lost LP available once again!

There are a number of standout tracks, but this set of slides from Padraig Moynihan and Thomas Buckley is sure to get the feet tapping!

Good luck finding this in a record shop near you! Alternatively, you can click here to download the tracks.
