Irish Music from Cleveland, Vol. 3: The Continuing Tradition

Fiddler Tom McCaffrey and flutist Tom Byrne, both Irish immigrants, met in Cleveland, Ohio in 1957. The pair developed a unique performance style based on their personal musical heritage and the folk music of the southern Appalachians. This album, recorded 23 years after their initial meeting, captures a glimpse of how this duo grew together as musicians, each coming to understand the nuances of the other’s style. Ultimately, Irish Music from Cleveland is a powerful testament to the enduring legacy of Irish music in America as McCaffrey and Byrne come together to share their love of dance tunes with the next generation. This album is third and last in the series. Liner notes include information on Irish dance tunes, artist biographies, and commentary for each track.
