Quoted from the site, with minor adjustments:

"This CD represents a broad cross section of recordings which exist in the music archive of the Coleman Heritage Centre, Gurteen, Co. Sligo. Fiddle playing is well represented on the CD, this being a reflection on the popularity of the instrument in south Sligo a generation ago.

This is the first of two CD in a series of archive recordings from the Coleman Heritage Centre. In this selection, we have included, along with some well-known names from the Sligo tradition, a number of musicians who many listeners will be hearing for the first time.

This is an archive album so recording quality is reduced many tracks come from old 78’ records."


Review: The Coleman Archive Volume 1: The Living Tradition
~ Geoff Wallis

No slick studio dial twiddlin’ and fuffin’ about ~ both of the recordings in this series, Volumes 1 & 2, are raw, rough, human, down to earth and inspirational.

I love how Josie plays the tunes in track nine singly - they’re both much improved for it.

Yes, me too… 🙂
