(December 2007) 40 tracks
This 2CD Irish music collection and accompanying guide were compiled and written by Geoff Wallis, co-author of the Rough Guides to Ireland, Dublin and Irish Music and regular contributor to Roots and Songlines magazines. The two CDs feature a wealth of musicians, ranging from lively contemporary bands such as Lúnasa, Téada and Solas, to solo performances by traditional luminaries such as uilleann piper Willie Clancy and fiddler John Doherty. There's plenty of songs too, including recently composed numbers by Karan Casey and Gráda, as well as traditional classics in both the Irish and English languages.
The accompanying 40-page guide highlights Dublin's must-see attractions as well as suggesting ten other key sights to visit across the rest of Ireland and pinpointing the best of the many music and arts festivals which provide an enthralling backdrop to any trip to the country. Plus there's plenty of background material and a host of tips to enhance your travel experience.
