    Compiled by Irish music specialist Geoff Wallis, this album is bursting with reels, jigs, polkas, flings, fiddles and flutes. Over a twenty-year career, Altan have achieved worldwide acclaim and the track featured here is a sneak preview from their 2005 album, Local Ground. Fiddler and vocalist Mairéad Ní Mhaonaigh has kept them true to their Donegal roots, using the Irish-language songs she learnt as a child and the county's vibrant dance music.

    The Rough Guide To Irish Music features a snapshot of the exceptional and diverse talents on the thriving Irish music scene including North Cregg, Mary McPartlan, Paul Moran & Fergal Scahill, Séamus Creagh & Aidan Coffey, Séamus Begley & Jim Murray, The Prodigals, Helen Roche and Séamus Quinn & Gary Hastings.

    **** (four stars) 'Excellent... illustrates the quality of Irish music today.' Songlines
