John & James Carty


with Special Guests Sean & Kevin O'Farrell
Sunday, 7th October 2007
Cúl na Sméar Hall
John is the master fiddle and banjo player and his brother James is master of the concert flute, the bamboo flute and any other kind of flute you can name. The brothers play a lovely brand of traditional music and John plays the banjo with a happy grin on his face that you can hear.
They were joined on stage for the final minutes of the concert by local lads Sean (fiddle) & Kevin O'Farrell (guitar). About one minute into the first song, it was obvious that the young talent was in tune with the established masters and everyone on stage relaxed and roared through a lively set of reels.
The podcast of the Carty's comes from the first half of the concert. You'll hear James playing a solo on the flute and John performing a slow air on the fiddle. Then John picks up the banjo and away they go. You get a pretty good overview of this dynamic duo's many different styles of music.
