Gerry Harrington

Traditional Irish Fiddle Player, Teacher, Sound Engineer. 

New Solo Album “At Home”

That borderless musical region known as Sliabh Luachra basks in this finely honed tribute from south Kerry fiddler Gerry Harrington. The bare-naked bow is all that matters in this forensically researched and lovingly documented collection, in which Harrington lets the fiddle breathe deep of the music beloved of the great Pádraig O’Keeffe, Julia Clifford and Denis Murphy. Here, the big tunes of the Rushy Glen rise up to their full height, safe in the hands of a musician whose attention to detail is remarkably cerebral and visceral at the same time. The sheer sweep of the soloist buoys this exceptional collection throughout its generous 68 minutes, with Harrington its anchor, inhabiting each tune set as if his bow hand was tethered to it since birth. Harrington’s greatest gift is his willingness to let the tunes themselves do the talking. See cdbaby.com
