VARIOUS ARTISTS "Claddagh's Choice,
An Anthology of Traditional Irish Music Vol I" Claddagh Records CC40CD
VARIOUS ARTISTS "Claddagh's Choice,
An Anthology of Traditional Irish Music Vol II" Claddagh Records CC65CD

This is a double CD compiled from recordings made by Claddagh Records over the last twenty years. Vol I is the CD version of the 1984 LP "Claddagh's Chioce" while Vol II is a newer selection of tracks recorded since.

The breadth of assembled artists and the quality and depth of the performances is impressive. Represented among the thirty tracks are some of the ledgendry and peerless figures in Irish Traditional Music. Seamus Ennis, Sean O Riada, Leo Rowsome, Sean 'ac Dhonncha and Tommy Pots. Others, none the less worthy of mentioning or listening to, include Dolores Keane, Dan O'Dowd, Len Graham, Paul McGrattan, Sarah and Rita Keane, Ronan Browne, Mary MacNamara and of course a couple of sets from The Chieftans plus solo tracks from Sean Keane and Derick Bell.
