GUEST,Mikey Joe Irish Polkas (19) RE: Irish Polkas 22 Feb 01

Anything to do with Irish Polkas (or slides) is almost exclusively located in the Sliabh Luachra region they are very rare everywhere else. Sliabh Luachra (trans. Rushy Mountain)comprises of North Cork - North Kerry - West Limerick - it is sometimes referred to in musical terms as the 33rd county. Recordings from around here can be found on smaller labels. Look for people like Johnny Leary (box) Julia Clifford (fiddle) Denis (The Weaver)Murphy (fiddle) & Jackie Daly (box). The music is primarily for dancing to and still is danced to a lot. Set dancing in Dan Connells in Knocknagree every Fri and Sun night if anyones interested. Any other questions - bring em on
