Sleeve Notes

RTE's Festival Folk series has been gathering strength from year to year and I am pleased to have been associated with it from the very beginning in 1982. There have been many memorable concerts at The National Stadium and many stirring individual performances. This album features tracks from most of the top names in the Irish Folk world who have taken part in the Festival Folk weeks and they need no introduction from me. The songs are all great favourites and indeed this can be truly called a hits album. I wish to thank all the participants for their co-operation and I can say it was a pleasure to work with each and every one of them.
