The Sligo Indians

The Sligo Indians is a long-awaited solo debut for one of America's finest folk fiddlers. A Brooklyn native of mixed Irish and Italian descent, New Yorker Tony DeMarco is a master of the intricate ornamentation, swinging rhythm, and adventurous melodic improvisation that mark the famed County Sligo fiddle style. Mentored by the late Sligo master fiddler Paddy Reynolds, Tony has for decades been a pillar of the Irish session scene in New York City. 54 minutes, 36-page booklet with extensive notes. With special guests: Eddie Bobe, Kevin Burke, JR Davey, Tom English, Ivan Goff, Natalie Haas, Peter Horan, Charlie Lennon, Seamie O'Dowd, Fionn O'Lochainn, Jerry O'Sullivan, John Patitucci and Seamus Tansey.
