Awful video qualityBy a customer from Surrey , 30 Jun 2005
[Highly rated reviewer]Many excellent music tracks eg 'Sonny' (Emmylou Harris, Mary Black and Dolores Keane) and 'Easter Snow' (Catherine Ennis and Liam O'Flynn) but ruined by the grainy video - like watching an analogue TV channel in a poor reception area! And track navigation is a bit weird. Just close your eyes and LISTEN!
DisappointingBy everlleigh (7 reviews) from Carshalton, England , 01 Feb 2009The TV series was detailed and fascinating, but the DVD is just a few random songs and interviews. A missed opportunity.
Irish InfluenceBy Trustman1uk from Cambridgeshire , 13 Jan 2006This selection of music is taken from an outstanding BBC series in the 1990's which traced the influence of Irish folk music on rock and roll and music generally.
Certainly, the BBC are guilty of not bringing out this series out on DVD themselves, but this DVD gives a pretty good 'flavour' of the series and, if it is slightly disappointing, it is only because the BBC seemingly couldn't be bothered to show how good a series it was by bringing out a DVD themselves.

Not up to scratchBy ALLEN from LONDONDERRY , 14 Mar 2005By all accounts, this was a disappointing DVD. Its title would not particularly indicate that it refers to Irish music, but certainly when one queries the database for Irish artistes, this DVD is presented.
This DVD is essentially a compilation of Irish artists, contemporary or otherwise, making impromptu recordings which are interspersed with footage from old Irish pubs and scenic areas of Ireland. It will not appeal to anyone, as the production is slip shod, untidy and downright poor quality. The only thing that saved this DVD being cast into the depths of my bin, was the fact that rare performances from Mary Black, Dolores Keane, Mary Coughlan etc were recorded back in the late 1980s.
Most of the material on this DVD are known as reels and the aforementioned artists make limited appearances through the DVD - most of the recordings feature Donal Lunny. Whilst there are recordings from Paul Brady, Elvis Costello, there is an obligatory interview with Bono thrown in for good measure. A lesson in Uillean Pipe playing may interest some people. So something for everyone then?? I dont think so!!
