FTX-170 - THE MOVING CLOUDS

NEIL BOYLE

Neil BOYLE (1889-1961) - 'fiddler extraordinary' is the best way to describe him - "Neily" refused to record unless he could give his views on the present state of Irish music - he did this describing it as "Jungle Music"- but he did much more - he played what he called 'The Enchanted music of Ireland' - describing how it was taught to him by the 'little people' and elaborating on the need for embellishments - he also talks about and gives examples of lilting, keening and variations - recorded by Peter Kennedy, Dunloe, Co Donegal 1953 170Boyle,Neil+fiddle(PK#141).JPG
