The Sligo Masters

The story of three of the greatest fiddle players ever to grace the tradtitional Irish music stage, Michael Coleman, Paddy Killoran & James Morrison

 €15.00

The film, which focusses in particular on the three great fiddle players – Michael Coleman, James Morrison and Paddy Killoran – was filmed on location in Sligo, New York and Dublin, and casts an eye on a time when these musicians were to the forefront of traditional Irish music on the world stage.

The film describes how the Sligo musicians had such an influence on the traditional music scene that for many, there was only one style of playing Irish music, that which Coleman and Morrison had inherited from their own teachers and peers when growing up in Sligo, people like Phillip O’Beirne, John Joe Gardiner and Johnny Gorman.
