AllMusic Review by

County Clare is the Irish concertina heartland, and five of the musicians here hail from there. Though these charming 1974 recordings feature three generations, all adhere to the old solo tradition and the small British instrument. Their jigs, reels, hornpipes, and the rest are linked to both Irish pipe-playing and the English concertina tradition typified by William Kimber.
