\r\nThe Sugar Loaf - Kevin Madden
\r\n\r\nThe Sugar Loaf is the debut recording by Manchester fiddler Kevin Madden. As an All-Ireland senior fiddle champion from 1996, he was influenced by early recordings of Kathleen Collins, Liz Carroll, Tommy Maguire, Finbarr Dwyer, Joe Cooley and others and their imprint on his own style and approach is evident. Trac Connect reviews "The fast and the furious has been jettisoned for a measured and intuitive style of fiddling that concentrates on the clarity of the melody with a driving rhythm that pushes the music along. Like those early recording he strikes a perfect balance of sound with the piano accompaniment of Gerry Conlon. Never a dual, always a dance, they match perfectly the mood of the music and simply stroll their way through some great sets."\r\n
