AN MILEODEAN SCAOILTE - Johnny Connolly with Charlie Lennon

$ 22.00

Johnny Connolly is an acknowledged master: possibly the greatest Irish melodeon player ever, certainly the best of his generation. The Living Tradition Rí an Mhileoidin a thugtar ar Johnny Connolly, agus cruthaíonn sé in athuair ar an tríú halbam aonair seo uaidh, An Mileoidean Scaoilte, go bhfuil an teideal sin tuillte go maith aige. Mar is gnách dó, tá an ceol ar an taifeadadh seo rithimeach agus croíúil, le hornáidíocht bhlasta. Tá tionlacan ó Charlie Lennon ar an bpianó, agus seinneann sé fidil ar thraic amháin. Tá ríleanna, poirt, cornphíopaí, válsaí, polca agus an fonn mall Amhrán na Trá Báine ar an albam, le ceithre thraic curtha in oiriúint do Sheit Chonamara. Tá damhsa ar an sean-nós leis an damhsóir Seosamh Ó Neachtain le cloisteáil ar thraic amháin chomh maith. Léigh léirmheas / Read a review: The Irish Times Pay the Reckoning Johnny Connolly, also known as king of the melodeon, brings us more of his wonderful music on An Mileoidean Scaoilte, his third solo album. The music is, as always, soulful, with a rocksteady rhythm and beautiful ornamentation. Charlie Lennon provides the accompaniment on piano, and on fiddle on one track. The album includes jigs, reels, hornpipes, waltzes, a polka and the slow air Amhrán na Trá Báine. Four of the tracks are arranged specifically to suit the dancing of the Connemara set, and there is the added bonus of some sean-nós dancing, courtesy of Seosamh Ó Neachtain, to be heard on one of these.
