Listen to a Session from Dan O'Connells

Maybe a few miles outside Millstreet, but Dan O’Connells pub Knocknagree, in the middle of Sliabh Luchra region was frequented by many Millstreet people for their sessions. Unfortunately now Dan and some of the musicians are no longer with us, and the sessions are fewer, but last Wednesday night (12th August) on RTE1 Radio: The Rolling Wave, they played a session from Dan’s from October 1992. Follow this link where you can listen to an hour of traditional music and song:

Note: the 9pm news is played first, and the music from Dans starts after 4 minutes.

The second part of the session is on the radio tonight (Wednesday 19th August 2009) at 9pm.  I will put a link to it here when it becomes available.


Update (20-Aug-09): The second part of the session is here:

RTE Says:

We return to Dan O’Connell’s pub in Knocknagree for the finish of the 1992 session and also hear music and speech from accordion player Jacky Daly and fiddle player Séamus Creagh recorded at the Cork Folk Festival of that year.

Again, The session starts after 4 mins 10 seconds of the clip.
