5.0 out of 5 stars Bringing It All Back Home - CD 14 Mar 2012
By January
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
A double CD with all the music from the long-ago BBC TV series about how the music of Ireland was carried across the sea to other countries eg. America etc. when there was a mass evacuation of Ireland because of poverty mainly. The music they took with them at that time influenced the musicians of their adoptive country and they were, in turn, also influenced by music of America, England, Canada etc. The return to Ireland, perhaps generations later, of the music, then reinfluenced the Irish music of the homeland. The CD's show the wide variety & style of new 'Irish' music - folk, rock, bluegrass, choral, classical music, ballads, pop-type music etc etc. A brilliant CD with some excellent music and a little booklet with more detail. I bought the records when the TV programme was first shown, perhaps 15 years ago and I still enjoy the music now.

5.0 out of 5 stars A famous title 8 May 2008
By Richard
Format:Audio CD
Taken from the BBC series on Irish music this is a 2 CD collection with a booklet which gives details of all the songs.It opens with an instrumental called after the date it was recorded-April the 3rd and includes a few token Americans and Scots amongst the Irish artists and possibly one token Englishman in Elvis Costello who is of Irish descent.
The Costello track is the most un Irish one here as it ties in with his chamber music experiments.
Here you can see how Irish music influenced America's country music right from the beginning-a belief held by many like the Everly Brothers and Emmylou Harris who are both heard here

3.0 out of 5 stars Product packaging a little lacking 2 Oct 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I have been looking for this item on cd for some time as a gift for my father to update his tape copy. I was delighted to find it, but disappointed that the box has several cracks, presumably incurred during shipping. Considering this is meant to be a gift, it's a shame. The item arrived in a thin cardboard wrapping. I can't help wondering if the damage could have been avoided if the packaging had been more comprehensive. The cds play fine, the damaging to the box did not result in damage to the cds thankfully.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome 7 Nov 2013
By J. Kennedy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
In 1994, here in the US, the Disney channel aired a documentary called "Irish Music and America, A Musical Migration."
I've always wished there was a soundtrack of the documentary, but was unable to find anything back then. I was excited to find that the BBC had done a similar series and all of the music from the same artists were on their CD! Price was reasonable for a two-set CD package.

It didn't have the song I was looking for and the rest of the music on the CD was not the type
I enjoy.
