Though difficult to read and even harder to pronounce, Sliabh Luachra, a region in southern Ireland on the border of Cork and Kerry, has birthed a rich style of music that is easy on the ears. Jackie Daly is renowned for his talented instrumentals, heralded by the New York Times as “probably the best accordionist in Ireland,” and Matt Cranitch, a master fiddler, is equally formidable in his solo works. Together they create sublime and vibrant compositions that put the unique beauty and culture of Irish music in the limelight.

Saturday 7/25. $20, 7pm. C’ville Coffee, 1301 Harris St. 409-9631.
