Irish music videos and recordings

The Comhaltas web site is one of the best resources on the web for Irish music. It has lots of high quality videos of very talented people playing Irish music, often young people, at contests and festivals on fiddle, concertina, bagpipes, flute, tin whistle, accordion and banjo.

The Comhaltas video index — a truly substantial collection of music videos!

Here's list of selected videos at Comhaltas

This is Irish fidder John Kelly playing a set of two tunes, and then another performance:

"The Bower of Fennarum", "Heather Breeze"  ( < Ha ha! Couldn't understand when he says the title!) and  the second performance after the interview: The Foxhunter (in AEAE tuning). Gotta listen in at about 6 minutes and 30 seconds
