What do Bono, Mick Jagger, Brendan Behan, Kofi Annan, Brian Jones, Sean Connery, Pierce Brosnan, Seamus Ennis, Picasso, Samuel Beckett, Anita Pallenberg and Lucian Freud have in common? They were all friends of the founder of Ireland’s most iconic record label, Claddagh Records — Garech Browne. Heir to the Guinness fortune, Garech Browne set up Claddagh Records in a race to preserve Ireland’s musical and spoken word culture against the backdrop of the emerging Pop Culture scene coming into the country from the UK.
This hardcover book, 12” vinyl, & poster presented in a rigid slipcase chronicles the stories of both the world-renowned Claddagh Records record label and the extraordinary life of its founder Garech Browne. The 228-pp hardcover book is accompanied by Masters of Their Craft, The Claddagh Collection LP presenting 17 remastered tracks from Claddagh’s immensely rich catalogue, including a never-released-before poem from PULITZER PRIZE FOR POETRY and T.S ELIOT PRIZE-winning poet PAUL MULDOON.
REAL TO REEL is an extraordinary tale that weaves stories of rugged Connemara Sean-nós singers such as Vail O Flaherta and Rock and Roll icons such as Brain Jones into one captivating narrative.
