Description

The Lennon family is well-known amongst lovers of Irish music. Maurice's father, Ben Lennon, is well-known as a master of the Leitrim style of traditional fiddle, and his uncle, Charlie Lennon is renowned as a composer, piano accompanist and fiddler. Maurice showed that this musical legacy had been passed on to him when, at age nineteen, he became the youngest person to win the Senior Fiddle Championship at the All-Ireland Fleadh Cheoil, held in Ennis in 1977. Shortly after this he joined with three other All-Ireland Champions to form the band Stockton's Wing, with whom he composed, recorded and performed for the next twenty-seven years.

This CD is Maurice's first solo fiddle release, although he did feature on the Gael-Linn LP, An Fhidil 2, in 1977 with other young up-and-coming fiddlers such as Martin Hayes and Seamus Glackin, the LP, Aengus, with brothers Jackie and Tony Small and Garry Ó Briain in 1978, and the CD, Within a Mile of Kilty, with fellow Leitrim fiddlers Brian Rooney, Seamus Quinn, John Gordon, Ben and Charlie Lennon in 2005.

 Tá clú ar mhuintir Lennon i measc lucht éisteachta an cheoil Ghaelaigh. Tá seanaithne ar athair Maurice, Ben Lennon, mar mháistir stíle Liatroma na fiddle traidisiúnta, agus tá cáil ar a uncail Charlie mar chumadóir, mar thionlacaí piano agus mar fhidléir. Ba léir go raibh an traidisiún tugtha leis ag Maurice nuair a bhuaigh sé Craobh Shinsearach na Fidle ag Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann, a tionóladh in Inis i 1977 - ba é an duine ab óige a bhuaigh riamh é, agus é 19 bliain d'aois. Go gairid ina dhiaidh sin, bhunaigh sé an grúpa Stockton's Wing in éineacht le triúr Curadh Uile-Éireann eile, agus bhí sé ag cumadh, ag taifeadadh agus ag seinm ceoil leis an ngrúpa céanna ar feadh 27 bliain.

Is é an CD seo a chéad cheirnín fidle aonair, cé go raibh sé ag seinm ar cheirnín de chuid Gael-Linn, An Fhidil 2, i 1977, le leithéidí Martin Hayes agus Seamus Glackin; sheinn sé freisin ar an gceirnín Aengus, leis na deartháireacha Jackie agus Tony Small agus Garry Ó Briain i 1978, agus ar, Within a Mile of Kilty, le fidléirí eile, Brian Rooney, Seamus Quinn, John Gordon, Ben agus Charlie Lennon, in 2005.
