Concert Series

This album presents music from the 1995 Cork University Traditional Music Festival. This same festival series (known as Eigse na Laoi) has produced at least one other fantastic recording: "Dear Old Erin’s Isle" (1992). According to that CD’s liner notes, the festivals have followed the themes "Fiddlesticks" (1991), "Dear Old Erin’s Isle" (1992), "Cape Breton Island" (1993), "Across the Waters" (1994), and "The Gathering" (1995). Anyone know of any other albums to come out of the festivals, or what’s happened to the festivals since 1995?
