Burnside Album Details
Burke, Kevin, Sligo Made
Sligo Made was recorded in County Sligo in the west of Ireland, an area steeped in traditional music. Kevin Burke, a son of Sligo parents and life-long aficionado of Sligo music, asked some of his friends, all internationally acclaimed players and all residents of the Sligo area, to join with him in making this CD: Michael Holmes and Brian McDonagh from the renowned Irish band, Dervish; Steve Wickham of the Waterboys; multi instrumentalists Seamie O’Dowd and John Carty; piper Leonard Barry and bodhran player John Joe Kelly. The resulting performances are a glorious portrayal of the joy, intimacy and informality of traditional music at its best - a welcome addition to Sligo’s long musical history, Sligo Made.
