- Johnny O Leary - Music For The Set
The master accordion player of Sliabh Luachra learned his music from Padraig O?Keeffe, and is a contemporary of Denis Murphy and Julia Clifford, of the Cronins and Gerry McCarthy. He has played all his life for the local sets, and there is no end to the music he knows. This is a re-issue of a 1977 Topic album, the first time Johnny was introduced to a non-local audience on record. Previously it was only available on LP and cassette. The tunes are arranged so that a complete polka set can be danced to them ? an unusual arrangement at the time. Great music from one of the post-war masters, with informed and informative notes on both the music and the dance.
