Tommy Potts
The Liffey Banks




Claddagh Records


Irish Traditional

Year of production:



Tommy Potts, heir to over a century of family music, was one of the most innovative and inventive Irish fiddlers. He constantly re-interpreted his music, extending its horizons until the tunes were created anew. His lifelong fascination with melody and its structure continued until his death in 1988 and attracted serious academic study. However, its true worth is in its beauty of approach and execution and its appeal to the ear.
