Tom! Thanks for watching the trailer. Here is Maarten talking, collaborator on this project (the filmmaker). The history behind the tunes is absolutely fascinating and does make for a deeper musical experience once one dives into it. The film will be available on DVD and also on Video On Demand Rental. You can pre-order the DVD now and there is a discount if you do so before the 15th of January. See the website at

This looks to be a wonderful documentary film! How will we be able to see it after its release? I'd love to show it to the adult Irish trad session amatuer players group that I lead here in my town. I'm always talking about the historical significance of each tune I teach them, be it a jig or reel or otherwise. (BTW-I predict you're going to have a great impact on cellists who have been trying to play Irish traditional tunes with this film!)
