Finbarr Dwyer (often misspelled as "Finbar Dwyer") (20 September 1946 – 8 February 2014) was a traditional Irish accordion player from the famed Dwyer musical family. He was born in Castletownbere, Co. Cork on 20 September 1946, began playing accordion at the age of three, and began composing at the age of nine. Both of his parents played accordion and his father also played fiddle.
I came across this LP of Finbarr Dwyer while looking for info on him in the Irish Traditional Music Archive. I was delighted to find this. His playing is totally different on this album in comparison to his other LPs. In my opinion, he plays a little more like Joe Burke here and he even plays some tunes which appear on Joe Burke’s albums. Maybe that’s what I was hearing then? It was released in 1976 on the Silver Hill records Label and features Kevin Taylor on piano. Posted by patrickcumminsmusic 11 years ago. Track Listing.
