Summary:
Absolutely Irish! brings together the brightest stars of traditional Irish music for a once-in-a-lifetime concert that will leave folk music fans stunned by the virtuoso performances.

Filmed live at the intimate Irish Arts Center in New York City's famed Hell's Kitchen neighborhood, Irish music impresario Mick Moloney presents three generations of brilliant musicians as they display their mastery on much-beloved jigs, reels, and airs, then rock the hall with contemporary takes on favorite old tunes.

With special guest appearances by two living legends--80-year-old flute player Mike Rafferty and 85-year-old Irish dancer Jo McNamara -- and a heart-tugging rendition of Leaving Liverpool performed by the entire ensemble, Absolutely Irish! showcases the best talent on the Irish music scene today.

Absolutely Irish! includes performances by: whistle player Joanie Madden; fiddlers Liz Carroll, Eileen Ivers, and Athena Tergis; flute and banjo player Seamus Egan; guitarist John Doyle; singers Karan Casey, Robbie O'Connell, and Susan McKeown; piper Jerry O'Sullivan; concertina player Tim Collins; accordionist Billy McComiskey; and dancers Niall O'Leary and Darrah Carr.

Special DVD features include: bonus footage of eight additional performances at the Irish Arts Center; scene selections; and closed captions.
