L’Irlande au Québec

I apologise for the confusing listings..Had it all neatly lined up and kept losing it as the page had expired..

The music is very Québecois in feel and sound - fiddle and one-row melodeon (Cajun style accordion) with light guitar accompaniment and some sean nos singing.

Re: L’Irlande Au Québec/Irland In Québec

I recently purchased a download of this CD on cdbaby but they were not able to provide the PDF of the CD booklet. I have not succeeded in reaching Lisa Ornstein to see if she could provide a copy. Does anyone out there have a PDF they would be willing to share? I need it for a workshop that my wife and I will be doing at the Minnesota Irish Fair on The Irish influence on Québécois music. Thanks!
