Jackie Daly, like Mairtin was once a member of De Danann. He also worked with
Buttons & Bows, Patrick Street and Arcady.
He recorded 2 solo albums, of which his earliest, in the Topic "Music of Sliabh
Luchra" series, is considered a classic by most. On this album, he pioneers the
almost-dry box sound, which many have taken up after him.
His 2nd solo album, "Domhnach is Dalach/Many's a Wild Night", is much more
recent (1995), and shows how his style has developed (changed ?) to a more
staccato playing style.
He has also made 2 pretty good duet albums; "Eavesdropper" with Kevin Burke, and "Jackie Daly agus Seamus Creagh" with Seamus Creagh.
Like many others, Jackie nowadays plays a Saltarelle box.
