AllMusic Review by

World Music Network's Rough Guide to Celtic Lullabies offers up 17 sleepy ballads from some of the genre's most esteemed purveyors, including Altan ("Dún Do Shúil"), Tommy Sands ("Night Night and Einini"), and Plethyn ("Cysga Di Fy Mhlentyn Tlws [Sleep, My Little One]"). The collection doesn't just limit itself to the U.K. and Ireland, as evidenced by the inclusion of offerings from fiddler Liz Carroll (United States) and harpists Alan Stivell (Brittany) and Nadia Birkenstock (Germany). The compilation also includes a bonus CD that features nine lovely instrumentals from Irish harp player Gráinne Hambly.
