Sliabh Notes is Limerick accordionist Dónal Murphy, a founding member of Four Men & A Dog, County Cork’s master fiddler, Matt Cranitch and County Kerry guitar ace and vocalist Tommy O’Sullivan. The music of Ireland’s Sliabh Luachra region, a mountainous area that straddles the counties of Cork, Kerry and Limerick, is justly noted for its vibrant dance music where the polka and slide are king. This trio brings together Sliabh Luachra’s instantly identifiable dance sound with songs and tunes that reflect the Irish contribution to the music of the American south. Guaranteed to lift your spirits and your feet, join them as they celebrate their 25th anniversary.
