Jackie Daly - Sé mo laoch
« on: March 12, 2017, 11:16:25 PM »

Tonight's episode of the TG4 series 'Sé mo laoch' features the one and only Jackie Daly.
He's a very witty character and a great box player.
There are photos of some lovely old Paolos and he plays a box that he made himself!
Look out for his excellent bass playing on a waltz and slow air that he plays.
This programme is a real treat.
 Bain sult as!

Thanks for that - interesting program. Any idea of the name of the waltz he plays with Matt Cranitch at 6.16?

Hi,

There's a full-length version of that tune (followed by a few others) on youtube:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rYIQ2uzx9rI. The comments below it identify the tunes.

Rgds,

Han.

Thanks - I came across that video - lovely tune but not keen on the steady oom-pah bass though

Is that really a fair description of the bass playing? (Whether or not you like it is another matter of course)

Perhaps not, oom-pah may not be the right description (not sure what is) but to me the bass seems a bit monotonous for a delicate tune - but great for reels etc.
I've been listening to Irish concertina players who's style of bass playing I prefer with occasional bass notes played.

In the first tune he definitely uses what I would call an oom-pah bass, or to be strictly correct, oom-pah-pah because it's in 3/4 time.
In the final tune he mostly is playing off-beat pahs with the occasional on-beat oom. Not sure what is going on between those tunes - it's mainly concentrated on the fiddle.

Thank you Pearse Rossa for posting this, I wouldn't have seen it otherwise. Jackie is my favourite box player and the recordings he did with De Dannan are the best,

I had the fortune of seeing Jackie Daley and Matt Cranitch play live last night in an intimate venue.  Fantastic musicians and wonderful people.  The organizers of the event encouraged people to check out the very same program.
