Jackie Daly and Matt Cranitch are acknowledged masters of the rich musical tradition of
Sliabh Luachra in the southwest of Ireland. This culturally unique area on the Cork/Kerry
border is renowned for its distinctive style of playing and special repertoire of tunes, and
has been for many years a source of inspiration for both Jackie and Matt.
In both their performances and on their recordings, they draw upon this rich legacy.
Matt and Jackie are the benchmark of the current generation of Sliabh Luachra
musicians. … This is the definitive voice of Sliabh Luachra in our generation. – Sally
Sommers Smith, Irish Music Magazine.
Jackie and Matt have performed throughout the world, individually and with groups who
have set the standard for Irish traditional music. They have established enviable personal
reputations. Their playing together, on CD and in live performances, displays not only
virtuosity, but their respect, love and deep understanding of this vibrant musical tradition.
