Album cover: On the Fly


On the Fly

With this release, found band member Jacky Daly bids adieu with 2 tracks of his signature Sliabh Luachra style tunes. John Carty and Kevin Burke explore the tunes of North Connacht with rich double-fiddle sounds. Carty's flute and banjo give the group a fresh sound. Andy Irvine contributes three great traditional songs picked from his vast repertoire. Ged Foley, whose reliably excellent guitar work provides the glue, gives us a striking rendition of "The Galway Shawl."
