Audio: World Fiddle Day 2016 Playlist

In celebration of World Fiddle Day on May 21, 2016, the Ward Irish Music Archives has digitized these five 78 rpm discs of Irish fiddle players from the 1920s through the 1940s.

The list focuses heavily on reels, but features a rare recording of Tommy Potts, as well as tracks from Paddy Sweeney, Paddy Killoran, Chicago's Johnny McGreevy, and Patrick Gaffney.

Recordings were taken from the David Giovannoni and Michael and Mary Comer Collections at the Ward Irish Music Archives in Milwaukee, WI.
