Sleeve Notes

The contribution of the Dublin City Ramblers to the Irish folk music scene in recent years has been inestimable. On record, on stage and on television they have proven to be one of Ireland's most accomplished Ballad groups.

Following the tremendous success of their last LP on Dolphin Records, "The Rare Oul Times", their increasing popularity knows no bounds. Their achievements, both at home and abroad, have been nothing short of phenomenal.

With "The Ferryman", their latest selection of songs and instrumentals, they demonstrate once again what a rare and very mature talent theirs is. With this recording of traditional and contemporary material, the continued success of the Dublin City Ramblers in the field of Irish music is most certainly assured.
