WHEN IT'S ON

De Danann 11/6/2010

There is a controversy in Ireland and elsewhere about who the "real" De Dannan is. The original band broke up a number of years ago, but in 2009, two separate "reformations" claim the name and the musical legacy. On this edition of ACS, Brian O'Donovan explores the origins of the band, and this dispute.

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
