Charting the history of Irish traditional music since the turn of the century, award-winning record producer and radio presenter PJ Curtis provides an overview of Irish music and song from the earliest recordings, through the bleak decades of the Forties and Fifties, to the popular renaissance of recent years. Vividly capturing the personalities of musicians, past and present, who have contributed to this living tradition, Notes from the Heart explores the social milieu from which they spring, their influences, their cultural significance, and the spirit and essence of the music they make.
