A young Séamus O'Mahony standing playing fiddle

Séamus O’Mahony: A Hidden Gem in ITMA. Part 4 / “Caill-taisce’ sa Taisce Cheol Dúchais Éireann. Uimhir 4

In this the fourth and final blog on Cork fiddle player Séamus O'Mahony (1900—1991), Liam O'Connor introduces the remaining seven tracks from the 1952 reel-to-reel recording. ITMA is indebted to Brendan E. O'Mahony, Séamus' son who has generously allowed ITMA to freely share these recordings with the traditional music community.
