Brian Conway & Tony De Marco: The Apple in Winter (Irish Music in New York) - Green Linnet Stereo - SIF 1035

£7.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

A leading, masterful, proponent of the Sligo fiddling style, Brian Conway who was born in New York, although of Irish descent, is "the winner of two All- Ireland junior titles in 1973 and 1974 and the All-Ireland senior championship of 1986." Tony De Marco, from Brooklyn and of Irish and Italian descent, is also described as conscientious, aware and deep in his discerning and astute Sligo fiddling, "he is among the worlds leading exponent’s of the sophisticated County Sligo style of Irish fiddling. Tony’s playing has all the characteristics of great Sligo fiddling: swinging rythmic drive, a wealth of bowed and finger ornamentation, and a high degree of improvised melodic variation."
This journey through the influence, the roots, the sentiments and traditions which from Ireland have come to be entwined and essential to the unique atmosphere of New York, is explored and given appreciation, celebrated, listened to, on this charming vinyl. To discover the enduring spirit of a people, the charisma, the unique and earthy charm and artistry with which the Irish contributed to music, a will to survive and the warmth to overcome adversity with enduring cheer, and the narrative human insight in to which it is all recorded.
Vinyl is in good condition with a little dust, no scratches. Box is fair, though with some wear and tear.
