UpArrow icon The Irish Weavers "Live In Concert" - DVD  UpArrow icon

horizontal seperator

This is the Irish Weaver's second DVD. See the Irish Weavers live in concert and some of Ireland's most scenic beauty spots. See beautiful scenes from Co. Cork, Co. Kerry, Co. Clare and Co. Galway and much more. You get the best of the Irish Weavers comedy, folk, ballad/trad show with music and song as well as scenery from some of Ireland's most famous beauty spots. See Blarney castle and learn how to kiss the Blarney stone! See scenes from the Ring of Kerry including Lady's view, Torc waterfall and feel the atmosphere of the Irish countryside and coastal land scape.

We like to think of it as capturing a little piece of Ireland on video through the scenery and through giving you a taste of what Irish song, dance, music, or as we say in Ireland, 'Irish Craic', is all about. We hope you enjoy this DVD as much as we enjoyed making it.

C.D. A Jig, A Jog and A Magic Dog. This album contains thirteen songs of music, comedy and song. Eleven of the tracks are original, They range from 'The generations To come' a historical song about Ireland from 1798 to today, 'The L and I Call My Own' and 'Won't You Sail Across The Sea To Ireland', sentimental songs about Ireland , to 'Rover' , 'The Joggin Song', ' The Garda Car' and 'Free - On The House', lively and comical songs. However the two most popular items on this album are songs called 'Young Arthur' and 'The Fly'. The latter is a comedy song about a fly that goes beserk! and is one of the most popular songs we do whenever The Irish Weavers go on tour in The United States. 'Young Arthur', an original song by The Irish Weavers, is an anti- war song written specifically for the people of Northern Ireland. At live performances the song is dedicated to the people of Northern Ireland and to similar people in similar situations in simil ar countries such as Bosnia, Ruanda and Russia with the hope that in time, like in Ireland there may be peace in these countries aswell in the near future. It has a beautiful melody, with a beautiful arrangement featuring the Uileann Pipes (traditional Irish pipes) and very simple lyrics with a strong message. It's a gentle song sung by a son at the grave side of his father. They are both soldiers and his son reflects on both their lives. The message of the song is wrapped up by saying that 'I don't think that there's anyone out there who really wants to pick up a gun and shoot anyone but sometimes it's a thing that people feel they have to do in desperation.The album contains one all Irish track called 'Ag Teacht Abhaile' (Coming Home) and of course there are three traditional music tracks for the Traditional music lovers.
Instrumentation:
Traditional Irish timber flute, bodhran (Irish Drum), fiddle i.e. violin, uileann pipes (traditional Irish 'elbow' pipes), tin whistle, Irish two row button accordian, piano accordian, guitar, mandolin and spoons.
