\r\nFiddle Music - Danny Diamond

Danny Diamond's album Fiddle Music brings together wide-ranging musical influences from the Irish tradition and beyond in 45 minutes of full-blooded fiddle music. Diamond's unique and distinctive fiddle style is revealed on this recording: built on a wide range of influences, from Dublin fiddlers Tommie Potts and Se�n Keane, to his parents' music and the fiddle tradition of Co. Donegal, to American old-time and Nordic folk. The album largely features tunes from the Irish traditional repertoire, showcasing music learned from family members, friends and older recordings. Also included are five of Danny's compositions which draw on Irish, Nordic and American folk music traditions for inspiration.\r\n\r\n

All accompaniment on the album is drone-based, played on fiddle, nyckelharpa, uilleann pipes and accordion. This approach, which was born of a desire to explore beyond conventional Irish traditional backing instruments, gives the recording a unique and unusual character. The accompaniment is largely provided by Aki (Danny & Aki, Seti the First) on nyckelharpa, by Ian Lynch (Lynched) on uilleann pipes drones, and by Danny himself on open-tuned fiddle. Danny is also joined on three duet tracks by Dermy Diamond on fiddle, by Eoin � Beaglaoich on concertina, and by sean-n's dancer Anna Lethert.\r\n
