The current series of Sé Mo Laoch started last month on TG4 with a look at The Chieftan’s fiddle player, Seán Keane.
Tonight, Sunday, March 12th is the turn of Kanturk born box player, Jackie Daly and you can see it at 9:30pm on TG4.
Jackie Daly has become know almost as much for his quirky sense of humour as for his extraordinary musicianship.
Jackie’s Sliabh Lucrative
He is the man, after all, who coined the term Sliabh Lucrative. There’s much more where that came from when the giant of Traditional Irish Music is in that kind of wicked form.
There are contributions from the likes of: Matt Cranitch, Bryan O’Leary, Colm Murphy and more. This is an insightful look at the varied life and times of the man who constructed an accordion from scratch to achieve a sound he was searching for.
Segments of the programme were shot in the deeply historic Lyons’s Bar in Scartaglin and more in the village heritage centre.
