Forty years ago, following the decline of Planxty, Paul Brady and Andy Irvine went into the studio to explore a fresh new collaboration. What came next was one of the most influential and iconic albums of folk song ever recorded on the island of Ireland. As a testament to the album’s lasting influence, MusicTown sees Dublin’s young, up and coming folk singers perform songs from the timeless record forty years after the fact.
