In 1792, Edward Bunting brought together ten of the foremost Irish harpers for a harp festival in Belfast, Ireland. It was during this period that Bunting collected and catalogued all of the available harp music of the day, which he subsequently published in books until well after 1800. Two-hundred years after this festival, the Chieftains resurrected much of this beautiful, but largely obscure music, in concert with the Belfast Harp Orchestra. This CD contains both live tracks from the two concerts the Chieftains performed with The Belfast Harp Orchestra, as well as selections recorded later in Dublin and in Los Angeles at Frank Zappa's personal recording studio. Standout tracks include "MacAllistrum's March-Mairseail Alasdroim" and "The Green Fields of America". The former reflects the rich cross-fertilisation between Irish and Scottish harpers and pipers. The latter is a more common tune, and the theme, not surprisingly is centred around Irish emigration to the United States.
