Blooming Meadows: The World of Irish Traditional Musicians
This is a book of outstandingly warm, quirky and personality-laden pictures by the photographer Nutan. The moods and themes of these images are developed in the texts by Fintan Vallely and Charlie Piggott into personalities, lives, community and nation through biography, interview, comment, poetry and song. The voices are those of musicians and singers who have helped shape the revival of traditional music since the 1950s, along with today's generation of talented, articulate and highly educated players. Nostalgia, nationalism, romanticism, virtuosity and communitas here meet art and quiet confidence in cultural meaning.
