Sleeve Notes

The Dublin City Ramblers are "The Craic" they are known and loved from Waterville to Washington. They sing Irish ballads with gusto and joy, travelling the world to Irish music gatherings and festivals. They sing for pleasure revelling in the pub atmosphere that an evening of song and music can create — as is evident by the worldwide popularity of "The Irish Pub" a unique experience that we hope to recreate on this recording.

They take the stage — Seán McGuinness tunes his banjo, Shay Kavanagh rosins his bow, Paddy Sweeney strums his guitar and Brendan Doyle, his Bodhrán by his side, clears his throat.
