I think it is reasonable to expect an element of great music and fine roguery on the RTÉ One Today Show, today at 3:30pm. as West Kerry and Sliabh Luachra fluency in both areas meet head on.
Bryan O’Leary declared himself delighted to reveal that he’ll be featuring on the RTÉ One television show with Maura and Daithí at 3.30pm this very afternoon.
Bryan will talking about the music of his native Sliabh Luachra and playing one of his own compositions which features on his new EP, Tranquilty in Tureencahill.
Mass Time Composition
The EP includes a slide Bryan composed while at Mass in Ballydesmond one morning and the compilation was launched just before Christmas under Eoin Stan O’Sullivan’s recently founded ‘Sliabh Luachra Record Label.’
This initiative is funded by Kerry, Cork and Limerick County Councils with support from the Arts Council and Creative Ireland.
Dedications to Heroes
The new release includes tunes dedicated to all the front-line workers for their massive sacrifice and help in saving so many others; to dancer Anne Keane, RIP; to his well known ‘Granda’ Johnny O’Leary, RIP; to his parents, Bertie and Maureen; to his teacher, Nicky McAuliffe; to his grandmother, Hannah Mariah O’Leary; to his music heroes and influences: Jimmy Doyle, Billy Clifford and Jackie Daly.
Hard Copies Available
The limited edition of hard copies (250) of the EP have now arrived in Sliabh Luachra after a brief delay and have all been numbered and signed.
“I hope some of you can tune in for my appearance on the Today Show on RTÉ 1 today at 3.30pm,” said Bryan with the ever present smile and wink.
