Sweeney's Men

What a remarkable reunion. After being apart for more than 40 years Sweeney's Men reunited for this single concert at The Fiddlers Green Festival in Rostrevor, Co. Down in Northern Ireland 2007. Sadly Joe Dolan could'nt join them so Paul Brady stepped in and took his place.

I wish there were more videos of that event available. This is Sally Brown.

Ceird and Cheoil-The Bouzouki

This fantastic RTE-Programme about the bouzouki finally found it's way to youtube. Split in four parts here's a lot of information on this fine instrument. I mentioned this programme before, but here it is in fairly good quality.
