"There is a good ... balance between instrumental dance music, instrumental airs, and English- and Irish-language song. The DVD does work most effectively in presenting a tradition...Nicholas Carolan needs to be congratulated for the quality of the selection of his material and his presentation of it. the aesthetic sensibility that has obviously led him has given us something that I would recommend with little reservation." - Journal of Music
