Traditional Irish Music
Well worth watching is this TG4 documentary on the life and music of Mícheál Ó Domhnaill, legendary singer and guitar player and member of The Bothy Band -- the most influential traditional group of all. His career spanned 50 years and he is hailed as one of the legends of traditional Irish music. He died tragically in his home in Dublin in 2006. In this programme his friends, family and fellow musicians talk of a singer, composer, producer and guitar player whose imprint on the music is still felt today. Contributors include members of The Bothy Band, Dónal Lunny, Matt Molloy, Paddy Keenan, Kevin Burke and Tríona Ní Dhomnaill as well as Paddy Glackin, Maighread Ní Dhomhnaill and others.
