Rough Guide To Irish Music
My only problem with this book is that it wasn't written four years ago when I first became seriously interested in Irish music (I eventually started the Arizona Irish Music Society...). I could not find a quick cure to my ignorance and reading Irish Music Magazine was frustratingly unsystematic.
Most books on Irish music are focused on the early history of the music, but there was little about the last 50 years. For me The Rough Guide to Irish Music is absolute God send. It is incredibly thorough and yet quite readable.
The first part of the book gives an excellant background on the history of Irish music and its evolution over the last fifty years. The next sections give profiles of key artists and bands with recommendations about their best CD's. Beware, reading this section can be very expensive!
I cannot pretend familiarity with all the performers and bands covered, but I was favorably impressed with their coverage of the performers I do know.
The Rough Guide Guide to Irish Music is an incredible achievment.Get your Rough Guide To Irish Music Now!
