Buttons and Bows
This influential foursome made up of Jackie Daly, Séamus and Manus McGuire and Garry O’Briain, began their days with sessions around Kinvara, County Galway. They had a shared taste for musical adventure. Their travels had already brought them individually to Scandanavia, Shetland, Canada and the US; places which yielded rich pickings of musical ideas.
With their roots firmly planted in their beloved Irish traditional music of Sligo and Sliabh Luachra, the band was ready to experiment with graceful Quebecois waltzes, lively Danish quadrilles and achingly beautiful Shetland airs. Barriers were broken; energy and humour abounded; jigs and reels were given a new dusting of magic.
