This is the fourth CD collection in a series of archive recordings from the Coleman Heritage Centre having the general title THE COLEMAN ARCHIVE. As in the previous collections (vols. 1, 2 and 3), the musicians and singers come mainly from the south Sligo locality, but also include performers from the neighbouring counties of Mayo, Roscommon and Leitrim. The present collection features some individuals who, although lovingly remembered by those who heard them, would surely be among the many local musicians of the past whom time has silenced, had not these recordings been made. It is important to recognise the contribution to the cultural integrity of place and locality of those who carried out and preserved these recordings, confirming once again the richness of the oral tradition in Ireland.
