If you don’t wish to read through the notes below, you can go straight to playlist T, part 4 on YouTube here.
The fourth 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.
Clarebannerman (275 videos as of today) maintains a list of some truly inspiring Irish music (and other types of music as well – the “top ten” below focuses only on the trad material).
Clarebannerman’s YouTube channel can be found here. It’s well worth bookmarking! https://www.youtube.com/user/clarebannerman/featured
