"`Celtic Roots Festival, Vol. 1 is the first of three DVD's containing engaging live performances by marvelously gifted Celtic musicians and singers gathered in the Canadian town of Goderich. The festivities take place in what appears to be a large restaurant or sorts on a rather small stage beautifully decorated to awaken the Irish muse in all of us. A large Celtic cross, a rock wall, a standing stone or two and an assortment of brush and barren branches create the perfect atmosphere for what we are about to hear.
Sean Keane: If I Needed You / Isle of Hope / May Morning Dewz / Stoir Machree
Mahers Bahers: Three Newfoundland Jigs / Sterling Castle-Belfast Hornpipe / Sweet Forget Me Not
Simon Mayer & Hilary James: Jump the Gun-Reeling Over the Rooftops / Buttermere Waltz / Down the Road I'll Go / The Dark and Slender Boy
Bobby Watt: I Once Loved A Lass / A Man's A Man For A'That / Jaimie Raeburn / Factory Girl / Remembrance Day
This is an absolutely wonderful production. The cameras are as close to the performers as possible providing an intimate feel to the evening. You almost feel as though you're on-stage with them. Truly a magical listening and viewing experience! Don't forget to buy vol. 2 & 3 as well."

"While every transaction with Amazon has been flawless, this great dvd of a celtic festival in Goderich, Ontario, Canada was nice, but left me wanting more information on the artists who appeared on the DVD. Perhaps the festival promoters could write an enclosure for future DVDs telling a little about the performers; where they originated, how long they have been performing, contact information for individual performers, etc. I wished each performing solo or group talked a bit so I could learn more. However, the performances were varied and interesting, the sound was good and all left me wanting to know more. I will research the festival and hopefully attend future ones to find out what the DVD left me hungry for. I originally thought these were from the Celtic Colours festival in Nova Scotia, but enjoyed it nonetheless."
