One of the fiddlers Charlie Mulvihill played a lot with was Denis Murphy, a native of Lisheen, County Kerry who spent much of the years from 1942 to 1965 in New York. Murphy is known today as one of the great champions of Sliabh Luachra polkas and slides, but in the Big Apple he fitted in well with the Sligo-style fiddle players of the Bronx and even recorded a few 78 sides for Frank Fallon’s Celtic label, some with flute player Charlie Higgins in the Ballinamore Céilí Band.
