Overview

The 1991 five-hour television documentary Bringing It All Back Home, tracing the Irish cultural and population migrations across the world, ran on the BBC in England and in Ireland, and a two-CD soundtrack album was spun off from it. In 1999, producer Donal Lunny took the material, added some newly recorded and previously unissued performances, and put together three CDs for reissue, of which this is the third. While it hews to the same theme as the TV series and the first two volumes, combining traditional performances of traditional Irish tunes with more contemporary and diverse music that was influenced by Irish music, the balance here is more toward the older material. The Everly Brothers, An Emotional Fish, and Luka Bloom are among the contemporary acts contributing tracks, but there is much more here that looks back to Irish traditions than forward to Irish influence. There are interesting juxtapositions, to be sure: De Dannan & Friends tackle a gospel number, "Operator," in Harlem; and Rita and Sara Keane, traditional Irish singer Dolores Keane's aunts, perform "A Stór Mo Chroi" in English as "Oh, love of my heart." But in general, the third volume of Bringing It All Back Home remains closer to home than its predecessors.
