CD Reviews

Top-class Kerry Music
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I love this album! Johnny O'Leary plays beautiful melodic music from his home county of Kerry. Johnny learned much of his music from his friend Pádraig O'Keeffe, the late great Kerry fiddle-master. What is so interesting about this recording is that you can hear the huge influence that the Kerry fiddle style has had on Johnny's style of accordion playing, and the result is a most distinctive and impressive way of playing. It is no wonder that Johnny O'Leary draws large crowds to dance to his music, and is very highly-respected by other musicians throughout Ireland, and further afield."
