It Was Great Altogether! The Continuing Tradition Of Irish Music In London
It Was Great Altogether! The Continuing Tradition Of Irish Music In London


Throughout the last fifty years, traditional Irish music has continued to secure a place for itself in London. Early on in the period, as the recordings on Discs 1 and 2 demonstrate, the "old" music, completely untouched by the goings-on in Irish popular music, was still going strong. Disc 3 is concerned with traditional music in recent years, and the current scene belongs to second and third generation musicians. These younger ones are the sons and daughters or grandchildren of first generation immigrants. They are clearly Londoners, but first and foremost they are Irish, strongly attached to the Irish community in London and their parents' places back home.
