- Peter Horan, Gerry Harrington - Fortune Favours The Merry
This is definitely the cream of the crop this month. Peter Horan is one of the best and most famous of the older Sligo musicians. For many years he was Fred Finn?s musical partner, until Fred?s untimely death. In this duo Peter played flute along with Fred?s fiddle. For that reason, many people were unaware of Peter?s own prowess on the fiddle. Now Peter has made an album (playing flute) with the much younger Kenmare fiddler, Gerry Harrington. Accompanied by Ollie Ross on piano they play the best of Sligo music, with a joyous lift and a very definite personality. There are seventeen tracks encompassing most of the dance forms and a slow air. It is probably one of the big records of the whole year.
