Description

Donegal’s immeasurable contribution to Irish music continues to produce musicians of the highest calibre as is seen in Cathal Ó Curráin’s debut recording. Many of my favourite musicians came from the county: Hughie Gillespie, Néillidh Boyle, Tommy Peoples, Aidan O’Donnell and Danny Meehan who I grew up listening to in London. I remember not long ago Danny remarking how all his musical heroes used to be older than him and now they are all younger! I’m delighted to be experiencing this scenario in the form of Cathal Ó Curráin. He possesses the full range of musical emotion as he carefully chooses his song material which he delivers effortlessly accompanied by his own tasteful bouzouki playing. He is a gorgeous banjo player, who I had the pleasure of working with in UL, and knows how to master this difficult instrument to the highest standard. Cathal also cuts loose with several fiddle tracks which he plays with drive and vigour drawing from his inherited Donegal fiddle.
