Mick Daly on Music Network tour, 12-29 Sept. 2017

The latest Music Network e-newsletter includes lists of openings for musicians and a calendar of events for the next two months, which includes a tour by Cathy Jordan (voice, bodhrán, bones), Jarlath Henderson (uilleann pipes, whistle, voice), and Mick 'Black Dog' Daly (guitar, 5-string banjo, voice) of Cork; the banjo shown above is a 5-string, with (we believe) a frailing scoop.

Details on the artists - together with full tour details, venue contact numbers, online booking facilities, and links to audio and video recordings - can be found here. The tour will not be in any sense a bluegrass or old-time event. Mick Daly, though, is one of the pioneers of playing both genres in this country. His career in music is outlined and illustrated in a 36-minute interview on the YouTube channel of Crowley's Music in their 'The measure of Cork' series. Mick's time as a member of the Sackville String Band comes up at about minute 22. His 1874 S.S. Stewart banjo is also seen and heard.
