Jimm? is 90 years of age. He plays the accordion with an ease that would be a credit to someone in their fifties, and with the proper swing for the dances of his native West Kerry. Listeners should be aware that most of this recording consists of conversation, sometimes with music playing behind it. The conversation is in beautiful, articulate Kerry Irish, as concise and intelligent as his music, and like his music it is easy on the ears. It consists of personal reminiscence, folk tales, and history (including Lindbergh's transatlantic flight). For anyone who speaks that dialect, it's an undiluted pleasure, and can also be recommended to learners.
