Prosperous 6/4/2011

The seminal group Planxty which released their first recording under that title in 1971, actually originated as Prosperous.

Christy Moore, Donal Lunny, Liam Og O'Flynn, and Andy Irvine had gotten together during the previous two years in the village of Prosperous in County Kildare. An album with that title appeared in 1970 and had a big impact on the folk world. A Celtic Sojourn explores this recording on this edition of the program.

ABOUT A CELTIC SOJOURN

Each week, host Brian O’Donovan explores traditional and contemporary music from around the Celtic world, connecting emerging artists to their deep musical roots. A native Irishman, O’Donovan’s musical expertise and warm, affable style has become a New England tradition itself, expanding A Celtic Sojourn into CDs, DVDs, television specials, and annual holiday concerts.

“Celtic music is a living tradition. A new generation is pushing its edges in fascinating ways, incorporating jazz, classical and rock, while still keenly aware of its deep roots.” — Brian O’Donovan
