Life, Love and Lore of the Irish Travellers

By Danceperados of Ireland

Format: CD-Audio

The Irish travellers or “Pavees” - as they call themselves - are a nomadic minority with a distinctive way of life. They have unique rituals, customs and are highly superstitious. The thriving Irish folk and dance community of today would hardly have emerged that strongly in the sixties and seventies, if some travellers families would not have held onto their tradition. They demonstrated to the rest of the Irish and then the World how unique Irish traditional music, song and dance are. Some of the greatest Irish musicians, singers and dancers are from a travelling background. The Irish constitution granted in 2014 the travelling people of Ireland a status as an ethnic minority and the Danceperados are the first to mark this positive move with an artistic contribution.  The "Life, love and lore of the Irish travellers“ CD is a tribute to them.
