Posted on Jan 14, 2014 in Music


Cork’s traditional cello player Ilse de Ziah takes a trip around Ireland with filmmaker Maarten Roos searching for the origins of ten Irish airs.
The connections between the music, the land, and its people make for a fascinating discovery of the history and stories behind the airs.
This feature length film includes interviews with renowned Irish musicians, meetings with local characters and the Airs played live by Ilse in the locations where they originate.
