Cuz Teahan's out-of-print and elusive book The Road to Glountane is available to download free from Scribd:
http://www.scribd.com/doc/136684203/The ... -Glountane
He played the concertina and one row melodeon, was born in the heart of Sliabh Luachra, was a student of Padraig O'Keeffe, emigrated to Chicago and became a keystone of the Chicago Irish music and dance scene.
Decription:
Terence "Cuz" Teahan, with Josh Dunson. Tune transcriptions and copying by Ann and Chuck Heymann.
The Road to Glountane represents the life work of master musician Terence "Cuz" Teahan. It contains fifty-five of his original compositions: reels, slides, jigs, polkas, hornpipes, and highland flings. An additional seven tunes written in honor of Cuz by fellow musicians and one special tune are also included.
Cuz introduces each of the tunes, and in a special autobiographical section he discusses the traditional Irish music of Chicago and his native Kerry. Thirteen poems--eleven of them by Cuz--help illustrate his humor and heart. thirty-two photographs--all of them reproduced here for the first time in book form--capture many outstanding Irish musicians from the 1940s to the present.
The Road to Glountane contains great music and the history of real Irish music and dance both in Chicago and Ireland.
