Everyone has seen them battered by the wind and lashed by the sea - the lighthouses that dot the Irish coastline, giving seafarers a safe passage round the cliffs, leading them into the harbour. A lighthouse is a symbolic place; it conjures up images of isolation, spirituality and pioneering enterprise. But a lighthouse also shows the direction we should go.
This is the inspiration for the Irish Folk Festival tour and this album is a wonderful exponent of that inspiration.
