If you don’t wish to read through the notes below, you can go straight to playlist T, part 10 on YouTube here.
The tenth in a series of the ten most popular videos on a number of YouTube channels to which I subscribe and which I visit regularly to listen to some great music which the channelmeisters have put together, some of it not available elsewhere. The selections are presented in ascending order of popularity, showing the number of views at the day the playlist was created.
PashaDragutReis (45 videos as of today). The YouTube channel of the Ceol Álainn blog which features many rare recordings of Traditional Irish Music (see http://ceolalainn.blogspot.com).
You can find PashaDragutReis’ channel at https://www.youtube.com/user/PashaDragutReis/. The channel and the weblink above are well worth taking some time to explore properly but hopefully this “top ten” will give you a taste.
