An amazing 2-CD collection (31 tracks) of live recordings made between 2003-2007 and featuring forty-two of the best known traditional instrumentalists and singers in Ireland today. The CD is named after the concert series which takes place at Bantry House, in West Cork. As Ellen Cranitch notes in her introduction, two of the performers represented, Frank Harte, Kitty Hayes, and Seamus Creagh, are no longer with us, making this collection all the more valuable.  Besides the three named, the list of performers also includes (in no particular order) Catherine McEvoy. Mary MacNamara, Tony MacMahon, Oisin MacDiarmada, Martin Hayes, Mairead Ni Mhaonaigh, etc, etc.
