Every year we send some of our best musicians and dancers on a concert tour of North America. Before they go, however, we grab them to make a recording of their show. These recordings have been popular with audiences since we started the tours in the late 60s - the albums give a good cross-section of solo and ensemble playing and singing. The 2006 Concert Tour, “Echoes of Erin”, continues this tradition.

You can listen to and read more about each track on the album by following the links below.
