Irish Folk: The Very Best of Various Artists

Irish Folk: The Very Best Of Various Artists


This is another fine compilation from Sanctuary Records featuring some of the premier Irish folk acts of the 1960s and '70s. With over two hours of music spread across this two-disc set, tracks by Finbar & Eddie Furey, Sweeney's Men, Mick Maloney, and of course the Dubliners are all well-represented. Some lovely, large-ensemble folk dance tracks by the Glenside Ceilidh Band are a highlight, as are several tunes by influential fiddler Dave Swarbrick. If there is any complaint here, it's that this collection very closely resembles several other Irish folk compilations released by Sanctuary both in artist and song selection. ~ Timothy Monger, Rovi
