The Castle Pie collection The Best of the Dubliners captures traditional favorites and classic Celtic songs by one of Ireland's beloved folk groups. From the spiritual inquisitions of "The Holy Ground" and the fiddle-driven soul of "Rocky Road to Dublin" to the good old-time of "Jar of Porter" and the political poetics of "Finnegan's Wake," the Dubliners were conscious of the ways of their country, but also divinely talented as musicians. This collection indicates their lasting appeal as one of folk music's best.
