Johnny Connolly, also known as king of the melodeon, brings us more of his wonderful music on An Mileoidean Scaoilte, his third solo album. The music is, as always, soulful, with a rocksteady rhythm and beautiful ornamentation. Charlie Lennon provides the accompaniment on piano, and on fiddle on one track. The album includes jigs, reels, hornpipes, waltzes, a polka and the slow air Amhrán na Trá Báine. Four of the tracks are arranged specifically to suit the dancing of the Connemara set, and there is the added bonus of some sean-nós dancing, courtesy of Seosamh Ó Neachtain, to be heard on one of these.
