For those unfamiliar with Danú: they rank with Altan, Dervish and Lúnasa among the very best Irish traditional bands today, building on the foundations laid by Planxty and the Bothy Band.

Their seven-person line-up permits them a formidable variety of instrumental combinations, and these are displayed to the full in this well-filmed live video, both in dance tunes and behind the singing of Muireann Nic Amhlaoibh. Particularly entertaining is the solo set, where the musicians play in turn and then walk off, leaving just Donnchadh Gough, who seems to hit the bodhrán like Bruce Lee hitting a punch bag!

There are also several well-chosen special guests.

In addition to the concert (in surround sound), there are interviews with each musician, and a segment on the band's history. The only extra I found less than fascinating was "On the Road", which is basically a sequence of home movies made on tour; but even that is skilfully put together.

Making a total of well over 3 hours, clearly a labour of love, and all for a couple of quid more than the price of a CD.

I've never seen better than this. If you get a chance to see them live, don't miss it.

P.S. At the start of his interview, Dónal Clancy plays a lovely little piece in DADGAD tuning, the title of which is never given.

I had a chance to ask him: it's called "Dog Rock", after a rock he used to fish off that is behind where he's sitting in the DVD.

I bought this after listening to "The Road Less Traveled" and the DVD conveys the atmosphere of a live gig with superb players very well. There's a good variety of music and song and a fair bit of banter as well. Compared with the 2 most recent CD front photos they also appear to enjoy each other's company!! If you want a crackin' concert of traditional Irish music look no further. The extras are also good, especially the various biographies; like the other reviewer to date, I found the "home-movie" of the US trip to be not essential viewing.

This DVD captures for me a very memorable tour that I was previllaged to catch in a very small theatre in a place called Polington Nth Yorks. nr. York. It is a very personal thing because I left Ireland(Belfast) 20 years ago, and I find It almost impossible to get past the 2nd track about "comming home to County Down" without going to pieces, but if I do manage to watch it all again, without disolving into tears, I am looking forward to rewatching the Bodran player - as he was astonishing. Of course they all where and are great musicians but he surprised me by manageing to get so many different sounds out of a simple drum (I think it is an instrument that may be a bit frowned upon and neglected even though it can be really exciting and he really proved it, getting all sorts of sounds out of it that I had never heard before - or even thought it was capable of.
