Forgotten Gems - Peter Carberry and Padraig McGovern
Peter Carberry comes from Holla, in Kenagh, County Longford and is a highly accomplished accordion and banjo player. The natural synchronicity of his partnership with Padraig comes no doubt from changes that Peter made to his playing style over the last few years. He swapped the established B/C style for the old-style press-and-draw C sharp/D style and also had his basses tuned to the regulators of the pipes creating a very different sound, according to his website. The result is as you can hear something special.\r\nPadraig McGovern is from Ballymagovern, a townland in the Cavan-Leitrim border area. He was taught by P.J. Flood from Belturbet in County Cavan and has long standing connections with the Cornafean Ceili group and the Ceolas Ceili Band “This album is the product of recent research into local music. Many old tunes are resurrected and played in the piping spirit. We are delighted to have been joined on the album by Seamus O'Kane (Bodhran) Brian Mooney (Bouzouki) and Sabina McGovern (Harp)."
