Sliabh Luachra, located on the Cork-Kerry border, boasts a rich musical tradition with a unique repertoire and history. Pádraig O’Keeffe (1887 – 1963), known as “The Last of the Fiddle-Masters,” was a prominent figure in this heritage. He spent 40 years teaching and playing the fiddle, leaving an immense impact on traditional music. We will explore his life and legacy, featuring illustrations and live music.
