Gerard Donagher - A Musical Trip in Time

Donagher, Gerard

A double CD by Gerard Donagher on the harmonica.


Gerard Donagher was born and reared in Kilmactranny, Co. Sligo in a community steeped in Irish Traditional music. His father, John Donagher and friends including Tommy Flynn, Josie McDermott, James Flynn, James Ewings and Jim Donagher shared many a tune in each other's houses. He won all-Ireland titles in Fleadh Cheoil na hEireann in 1963 and 1976. Gerard always had a love of all genres of music and when he married Bridie Kilcullen in 1964 there was also a marriage of traditional Irish music and classical music. They shared many happy times in music in their home in Easkey and other places with friends, family and strangers alike.

These two CDs endeavour to share with the listener a collection of pieces from these memorable musical times.
