The Dubliners, Horslips, Tommy Makem, Andy Irvine, Jimmy Crowley & Freddie White
The Ar Stáitse series features archive footage from a host of top names in Irish music, live in concert. RTÉ recorded and transmitted these concerts on various dates in the 1970’s. This first volume from the series brings you the best of Irish music from folk to traditional and celtic rock.
Aired late in 2010 on TG4 the series features great performances from The National Stadium in Dublin and Cork’s Opera House among other venues. Among the gems is an epic rendition of Horslips “Furniture” as well as classics like “The Town I Loved So Well” sung by Luke Kelly with The Dubliners. Andy Irvine together with Paul Brady deliver a seminal performance.
The CD & DVD releases of Ar Stáitse are brought to you by IML in partnership with RTÉ.
