The Sligo Masters:
The Story of three of the greatest fiddle players ever to grace the traditional Irish music stage, Michael Coleman, Paddy Killoran, & James Morrison. Filmed on location in Sligo, Dublin and New York, The Sligo Masters recalls a thriving musical industry in the 1920s but one which collapsed during the Great Depression. We remember how the ballrooms of New York played host to great nights of Sligo music, and we hear from the current crop of Sligo musicians, those who now step into their Master's shoes.
