1294CD Rough Guide to Irish Music.
The music of Ireland is a tradition that is alive and kicking. Right the way across the country music fills every corner of life – warm pubs bubble with musicians taking part in impromptu seisúns and rousing late-night sing-songs are commonplace.
This album features musicians old and new, from Waterford to Donegal and Kerry to Belfast.
It includes a second, bonus CD 'Six Days In Down' on which John McSherry, the masterful uilleann piper, and fiddle virtuoso Dónal O’Connor join forces with the globetrotting slide guitarist Bob Brozman.
