Description:
Eddie Duffy (1894 - 1986), was a traditional Irish musician. He was renowned for his slow airs on the flute, which he accomplished by playing in exactly the same style as he sang, with memorable effect. Many of his songs and tunes came from his mother who played the accordion.

In his youth he was hired at the Derrygonnelly Fair by a farmer who played the flute, it was from this farmer, Eddie learned to play the instrument. Duffy played in the 1930s and 1940s with local Céilí bands, the Sillees and the Knockmore. His name is now internationally known since he passed on many tunes and songs to Cathal MacConnell of the group The Boys of the Lough.
