Lomax in Éirinn

Alan Lomax had a dream to record and preserve the music of the world. In 1951, he began that mission in Ireland. Presented by Pól Brennan of Clannad, this programme uncovers the story behind that trip and shows how it resulted in the first LP of Irish music – the album that brought Irish music to the world. Lomax in Éirinn features exclusive performances from contemporary artists Steve Earle, Clannad, Slow Moving Clouds, The Tulla Ceilí Band and Nell Ní Chróinín.
