VARIOUS: LIVE FROM THE KATHARINE CORNELL THEATRE - TRADITIONAL IRISH MUSIC
Time and again, I find myself coming back to live recordings of this music because the performances sound so genuine and so human. This is the case again with this marvelous collection of concert recordings, mostly instrumentals, recorded live at the Katharine Cornell Theatre on Martha's Vineyard during the 2002 season. And how could it not be, with a list of featured musicians that includes Paddy Keenan (uilleann pipes), Tommy Peoples (fiddle)--in duets on a few tracks, Liz and Yvonne Kane (fiddles), Niall and Cillian Vallely (concertina, uilleann pipes), Oisin Mac Diarmada (fiddle) and his band Teada, Liz Doherty (fiddle), and a few more--as you can see, amateurs of fiddle music are especially in luck here. If that weren't enough, this is a 2-CD set with a total of 32 tracks, at the friendly price of a regular single CD. A remarkable production, and a thrilling listening experience.
