Joe Heaney: vocals

This is a fantastic 2-CD set of songs and stories by the great Connemara sean-nos master, compiled from previously unissued recordings made by Ewan McColl and Peggy Seeger. The CDs and a 59-page thick booklet containing all the song lyrics and stories transcribed are packaged in a case similar to the ones Topic used recently for their superb 20-volume "Voice of the People" collection. Between this and the Elizabeth Cronin book and CDs, amateurs of Irish traditional singing have plenty to enjoy.
