River Lea (a division of Rough Trade) releases Fire Draw Near - an album of Irish traditional songs and music from the archives, compiled by Ian Lynch of Dublin band Lankum.

“This LP is a collection of 13 rare, strange and wonderful gems from the Irish tradition. Recorded in various parts of the country over a period of over 60 years between 1947 and 2013. They show us a strong, multi-faceted and vibrant musical tradition in the country; one that still exists in the present day. The settings are varied – bars, living rooms, campsites, recording studios – as are the backgrounds of those who perform. The music of the Travellers, who tended to the flame of tradition while the rest of society began to lose interest is well-represented, as are styles ranging from sean-nós singing in Connemara, Donegal fiddle-playing, uilleann piping from Dublin and English language singing of ballads both bawdy and beautiful from across Ireland.” - Ian Lynch
