The Rough Guide to Irish Folk (Second Edition)


Deep-rooted and thriving, Irish folk is among the most vibrant musical traditions in Europe. Featuring a whirlwind of fiddles, flutes and accordions, this Rough Guide is jam-packed with an infectious blend of Ireland's greatest twenty-first-century music.

It comes with a bonus CD by Karan Casey, her 2008 album 'Ships in the Forest'. Karan Casey has long been one of the most innovative and provocative voices in Irish traditional and folk music. Produced by Donald Shaw, 'Ships in the Forest' is her fifth solo album and focuses largely on the traditional repertoire.
