The late Séamus Brady (Butlerstown Parish).
Séamus, who passed away some days ago, was probably one of the most talented and best-known musicians in the area for many years. Not alone that, he also had one of the finest repertoires of ballads. He is seen here playing at the 'Cow Shed', Listrolin, at one of the greatest trad sessions ever, courtesy of Ken & Sheila Wood. Ar dheis Dé go raibh sé.
The instrument is believed to have originated in Persia around 900 AD. The piano evolved from it.
