This page is dedicated to Jimmy Buckley, one of Ireland's greatest talents. Jimmy has been around for a good few years now. He's playing all over Ireland and the UK and combines Irish and Country Music with that little bit of Comedy, which makes his show a brilliant experience.
I met him for the first time in 1998 when I was on holiday in Limerick. Here's a picture of us which was taken that night.
Jimmy is brilliant, but I don't want to forget about the guys who are on stage with him, the Jimmy Buckley Band. They are branded as one of Ireland's best bands and I totally have to agree! They are doing a great job! As some of you might know, it is hardly possible to catch them all together unless they are on stage. So here's one of the few band pictures.
from left to right:
Niall Murphy - Bass guitar, Vocals
Billy Condon - Fiddle
Tony "Squeaky" Fitzpatrick - Drums
Eugene "Hodgie" Cunningham - Guitar, Vocals who's just brought out a new album with the best loved irish melodies, soon available in all good tourist offices and can also be ordered via email. To view Hodgie's CD's click here. (link not available yet, pls check back in a few days, you can see older cd's through the link on the name.)
John Taylor - Saxophone, Keyboards, Vocals
Also of great importance to Jimmy and the band is their Manager, Henry McMahon.
