The healthy state of our ballad and folk tradition is underscored weekly in club gatherings such as An Góilín and the Clé Club. Fergus Russell is a regular in the former since the late 1980s, and this collection is a snapshot of a singer in thrall of the songs. Here the stories reign supreme: porter, politics and the River Poddle (among other more nefarious influences) colour and shade the picaresque landscape through which Russell travels with verve.
