This collection plucked from Philip King's five-part documentary series on the influence of Irish music is a rare find. While some Celtic folk collections can often be peculiarly monochromatic or mawkish affairs, this selection paves the way for others by looking beyond the horizon and eavesdropping on the long conversation Ireland has held with North America.
Emigration is as Irish as the potato, and over the last century the musical resonances have been deafening. The Lee Valley String Band's "When First Into This Country" kicks up a storm of Appalachian hay, while in "Rose Connolly" the Everly Brothers weave their trademark harmonies around Uillean pipes, and Mary Black, Emmylou Harris, and Dolores Keane come together like old friends on "Sonny." However, this retrospective succeeds in giving us heart and soul where others might have opted for Irish mist. Paul Brady's tale of London rejection ("Nothing But the Same Old Story") packs a mighty punch in a new acoustic version, and in "Kilkelly," Mick Maloney paints the bleak picture of what emigration really meant for those left behind. If ploughing their lonely furrow across the ocean could reap so rich a harvest, then maybe it was worth it after all.
