Two other talented mystery men of the 1920s recording boom are fiddle players John “Jack” Gerrity and James McInerney. Not much is known about these two, and their output was small. McInerney, likely a Cavan man, issued only two discs. Gerrity was not much more prolific. Gerrity did, however, appear frequently in the pages of the Advocate in the 1920s, with notices of his performances with Tom Ennis, PJ Conlon, flute player Eddie Meehan and other leading New York musicians.
