"The Genius of Peter Conlon"
78 RPM recordings from 1917 - 1929
The remarkable Peter Conlon was the foremost player of traditional Irish music on the melodeon during the golden age of 78 rpm recording.
"This new double CD is an important milestone in the history of Irish accordion playing. It showcases one of the truly great accordion artists from the Irish tradition. I salute Oldtime Records and their team of Conlon aficionados, Alan Morrisroe and Charlie Harris, who have worked long and hard in bringing these wonderful CDs to reality. Their efforts in reintroducing us to Conlon will provide many hours of listening pleasure and will hopefully provide plenty of influence and inspiration for future generations of accordion players.
