    It's ok

    I purchased this for my husband (he is Irish) after watching the PBS documentary. He liked it because it features some of the best in the business, but some of the tracks seem like they were just forgotten tracks that the artists had forgotten about, dusted off and said to the compiler, "here, you can out this on the cd."

    A Good Picture of Ireland

    I really enjoy the soundtrack and listen to it on a regular basis. The music was diverse, well-done, and fun to listen to. The package includes good information and a DVD that I have not yet had a chance to watch, though I intend to. Overall a very good purchase, especially if you really enjoy Irish music and Irish culture. The price was a little bit high, but it also came with the previously mentioned DVD, so overall it was a good deal.

    A Gratifying Purchase

    After watching this DVD and listening to this CD, one word comes to mind: comprehensive. This is a very detailed, leave-no-stone-unturned project on Irish music...and this is only part one!

    Moya is a perfect choice for a host. It's obvious everyone involved was very passionate about this project. Very highly recommended!

    An Important Work

    Lovers of "pure" traditional Irish music beware: this is a broad sampling of Irish music from its roots to its branches, with more of an emphasis on breadth than on depth. The audio disc is a bit short on true traditional stuff, but what it has of that is very good, and all of the arrangements are of the highest caliber showcasing how neatly Irish music of all types dovetails with music of other traditions. The video disc, a very interesting and entertaining documentary hosted by Moya Brennan (lead singer of Clannad and sister of new age phenom Enya), spends slightly more than half its time examining the roots of the Celtic traditional music and its explosion in popularity beginning in the 60's and, arguably, peaking with Riverdance, before moving on to examine the Irish contributions to punk & pop. Disappointingly, the disc is only part one of a PBS series. But judging by what I have seen so far, it will be a very good series.

    Good Collection.

    Very nice collection of traditional and modern Irish music. DVD is very informative. I never knew the revival of Irish music was a result of performances in the United States.
