Thread Name: Irish Box Playing Recordings
Subject: RE: Irish Box Playing Recordings
I'd recommend a few classics:

Some of Joe Derrane's early recordings, released on Copley, are landmarks. They're a bit more thickly ornamented than the norm in Irish music today.

Jackie Daly's solo albums, particularly Music from Sliabh Luachra VII, are great.

James Keane has some terrific discs out too.

For a real traditional sound, I just got one by PJ and Marcus Hernon that's very nice.

And my personal favorite, Billy McComiskey, has one solo CD, plus several with the group The Irish Tradition and several amazing CDs with Trian.

Any other opinions?
