Ireland 1951 and 1953

This first anthology of Irish traditional music to be assembled on an LP record (as distinct from LPs consisting of reissues of 78s and Irish popular music) was drawn from these field recordings made by Alan Lomax, Robin Roberts, and Seamus Ennis, primarily in Cork, Kerry, Donegal, and Galway; and by Brian George and Maurice Brown for the BBC. Included are a young girl singing a death lament; performances by the traveling tinsmith and fiddle player Mickey Doherty; radical author Brendan Behan; and Seamus Ennis himself. The field recordings in Ireland were made with the cooperation of the Irish Folklore Commission, the BBC, and Radió Éireann; others were made later in various locations in London.
