Anam An Amhráin DVD
Just in time for Christmas, Cartoon Saloon have released their 'Anam An Amhráin' DVD. Available to purchase for around £20 through their online store.
'Anam An Amhráin' is a collection of well know traditional Irish songs, sung by celebrated musicians, brought to life through Cartoon Saloons stunning animation. Originally conceived to accompany a 5 part series for a TG4 music series, in which award winning singer Iarla Ó Lionáird takes a trip to meet friends and introduce us to new interpretations of old Irish songs. The series first aired in December 2009, so this DVD's been a long time coming, but well worth the wait.
We've posted a couple of excerpts from the DVD here, but you should buy yourself a copy or get it on your wish list to Father Christmas.
