Island To Island: Traditional Music From Ireland And Newfoundland
Island To Island: Traditional Music From Ireland And Newfoundland

Description

Seamus Creagh, Colin Carrigan, Aidan Coffey, Mick Daly, Graham Wells, Billy Sutton, Jason Whelan & Paddy Mackey. This fine collection of music represents the coming together of two traditions, which have much more in common than might appear at first sight. Newfoundland and Ireland are separated by two thousand miles of ocean water but this is a sea journey which has been undertaken by brave people since the seventeenth century. Indeed, Tim Severin successfully demonstrated with his replica Brendan voyage that such a crossing could have been made as early as the sixth century.
