The Byrne Family have produced this unique collection of James' music – put together from nearly thirty years of field recordings. Raw and authentic, they capture the true essence of 'The Beirneach'.
We hope this special selection, available for the first time in this Anniversary Collection, will take you back across the years and help you to remember the warmth, passion and intimacy of James’ style and perhaps help to inspire younger musicians, as James did during his lifetime. Ní bheidh a leithéid ann arís.
