The Rough Guide to Irish Music (Third Edition)


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. Revel in the sounds of Altan, Karan Casey, Sharon Shannon and Brendan Mulholland.

Bonus CD: Bob Brozman, John McSherry & Dónal O'Connor - 'Six Days in Down'.

On Six Days In Down two cutting-edge talents on the Irish music scene, the masterful uilleann piper John McSherry and fiddle virtuoso Dónal O'Connor, join forces with the globetrotting slide guitarist Bob Brozman to explore fresh perspectives on the living tradition. Featuring the haunting vocals of Stephanie Makem, the trio deliver an album of startling beauty with splashes of gentle humour.
