Keepers of Tradition

Concertina Players of Co. Clare


December 2009 release of a collection of 35 concertina players of an older generation of Co. Clare.

Special mention must go to archivists Joe O' Connor and Frank Whelan of Cois ns hAbhna in Ennis for making this compendium available to the public.

All these tracks are from field recordings captured in the kitchens and parlours of the featured musicians and the authenticity of the music is spellbinding.
