Bringing It All Back Home Vol.1

Double CD remastered and released in 2000 from recordings for the 1991 /BBC/RTÉ/ Philip King/Dónal Lunny/Hummingbird Productions 5-part documentary film "Bringing It All Back Home."

A truly remarkable project, looking at aspects of the history of Irish music with specific reference to how it fared when the emigrants took it abroad with them.

“Resilient, adaptable and above all enduring, Irish Music is a wave that broke on many shores. And left its mark on musical traditions. ‘Bringing It All Back Home’ is the story of that music and it’s extraordinary odyssey from kitchen to dancehall, from concert platform to international rock stadium. And back..”

There is an accompanying book by Nuala O’Connor (1991) ‘Bringing It All Back Home: The Influence of Irish Music.’

I think the CDs were also issued at some point as a 3 volume set, with slightly different selections included, which is a bit confusing.
