Cuz: A Tribute to Cuz Teahan - Niamh Ni Charra

 

Terry 'Cuz' Teahan emigrated from Kerry to Chicago in 1928 and spent the next 6 decades playing and passing on the music of Sliabh Luachra to generations of musicians. Shortly before his death, he made a tape full of rare tunes and his own compositions for a very young Niamh, now a multi-award-winning performer. 

Drawing on the tape for inspiration and material, this album is a tribute to Cuz and his music and along with Niamh's concertina, fiddle and voice, features top class guest artists from Ireland and America, all of whom had a connection to Cuz. 

Niamh is joined by:
Seamus Begley, Liz Carroll, Donogh Hennessy, Jimmy Keane, Anne and Nicky McAuliffe, Mick Moloney, Donal Murphy and Tommy O'Sullivan

\r\n"Cuz and the recognition this brings to Mr. Teahan is long overdue. Thank goodness, the woman who pulled all this together is a stunningly gifted musician and archivist. This is one of the best. Ever. Good on Cuz, and good on Niamh!" American Public Radio\r\n\r\n
