\r\nJackie Daly and Matt Cranitch are acknowledged masters of the rich musical tradition of\r\nSliabh Luachra in the southwest of Ireland. This culturally unique area on the Cork / Kerry\r\nborder is renowned for its distinctive style of playing, special repertoire, and as a source of\r\ninspiration for both Jackie and Matt. Their new album, Rolling On, draws upon this rich\r\nlegacy. As Dan Neely said in the NY Irish Echo, 'separately, they are brilliant to hear but\r\ntogether they are sublime.� A recording sure to become a reference point of the tradition, it\r\noffers a wide range of tunes, old and new, from slides and polkas to reels and airs, played in\r\nthe wonderfully expressive manner for which Matt and Jackie are justly famous.
\r\n\r\n"Matt and Jackie are the benchmark of the current generation of Sliabh Luachra\r\nmusicians. � This is the definitive voice of Sliabh Luachra in our generation." \r\n
\r\n -Sally Sommers Smith, Irish Music Magazine\r\n
\r\nJackie and Matt have performed around the world individually and with groups who have set\r\nthe standard for Irish traditional music. They have established enviable individual\r\nreputations, but their playing together, on CD and in live performances, displays not only\r\nvirtuosity, but their respect, love and deep understanding of this vibrant musical tradition.
\r\n\r\n"It's a rare thing how easily and naturally Daly and Cranitch's music articulates\r\ntogether, and through it one can sense the rare reverence they not only have for\r\neach other, but for the shared tradition they represent." � Dan Neely, Irish Echo, NY\r\n
\r\n\r\nThey are joined on this recording by Conal � Gr�da (flute), Geraldine O'Callaghan (fiddle)\r\nand Paul De Grae (guitar). These wonderful musicians add a further dimension to an album\r\ndestined to become a classic of the genre.\r\n
