AllMusic Review by

Ceili (pronounced KAY-lee) means "visit." In the case of St. Clair's Classic Ceili Bands collection, it means dance, drink, and be merry. The Ballinamore Ceili Band, Brophy Brothers Ceili Band, Sean Dunphy Ceili Band, and the Eamon Ceant Ceili Band provide the perfect soundtrack to a night of socializing with their electrifying sets of distinctly non-electric dance music. Listeners looking for an authentic slice of Irish pub culture will find much to love here, though they may be puzzled at the inclusion of a "hidden bonus track" on a budget compilation of traditional Irish ceili tunes.
