Event Details

Celebrated Sliabh Luachra button accordion and concertina player, Jackie Daly, has recently produced a fine music anthology: The Jackie Daly Collection of Original Irish Tunes. This new publication will be officially launched at the Cork Folk Festival.

Since he emerged as the All-Ireland Accordion accordion champion almost fifty years ago in Listowel in 1974, Jackie has been at the forefront of ensuring that the button accordion remains respected within the tradition. As well as his enduring duo partnerships with fiddlers, Séamus Creagh, Kevin Burke and latterly Matt Cranitch, Jackie was also the original accordionist with De Dannan before re-uniting with Burke in Patrick Street along with Andy Irvine and then joining Séamus and Manus McGuire and Garry Ó Briain in Buttons and Bows. Jackie was awarded the TG4 Gradam Ceoil as Musician of the Year in 2005.

This event is free.
