'An invaluable resource to students of Sliabh Luachra music' Paudie O'Connor

Originally published in 1994, this stunning collection of Irish sheet music is re-issued here in a new, entirely re-set edition, containing an additional 29 tunes, and new photographs.

Sliabh Luachra, in the heart of Munster, is home to a unique style of traditional Irish music. The great fiddle-player Padraig O'Keefe (1887-1963) lived and taught there, passing on a vibrant musical tradition to Denis Murphy and his daughter Julia Clifford, and to the box-player Johhny O'Leary. O'Leary, custodian of a huge repertoire of tunes adapted by The Chieftains, De Dannan and Planxty among others, blends Sliabh Luachra tunes with older Kerry music, and is hailed as one of its finest exponents. Polkas, slides, reela, jigs and hornpipes make up the tune-sources for the collection, with rare and historic photographs of the principal performers interspersed amongst the transcriptions.

This second edition of Johnny O'Leary of Sliabh Luachra is to be welcomed by all musicians and Irish music enthusiasts.
