PRAISE

"This series is essential for scholarly collections serving all grade levels (yes, kindergarten through Ph.D. programs)" - Library Journal

____________________________

"From country lanes to city streets and from a family's hut to a public performance hall, these videos display a trove of traditional instrumental, vocal and choral folk music"
-Booklist

____________________________

"The booklet will be very helpful to teachers as the information is concise and pertinent, including suggestions for reading and listening and a glossary... A valuable resource."
-School Library Journal

 

____________________________

 

"Sword dances of three nations form a sub-genre on a tape so artfully edited it can be watched for pleasure as well as study. A feast of fancy footwork, though Irish piper Micho Russell and others, make the musical content exceptional, too."
-LA Times

____________________________

"The absence of narration allows uninterrupted absorption of the filmed and recorded material. The printed notes explain what you see and hear."
