Movie Reviews

The best of western Irish dancing tradition
Marina J. Neary | Stamford, CT United States | 05/04/2006
(4 out of 5 stars)

"As an Irish dancer, I was pleasantly surprised by the fact that this style of Irish dancing is still practiced. This particular style is alive in the west of Ireland, but it's not taught in most Irish dancing schools. There is more hip and arm movements. I hope that this tradition stays alive, because it's truly refreshing to see the entire body move.

Also, I liked the fact that there was one principal female dancer and two male dancers. Usually it's the other way around - one guy and two girls. The only thing is that the video is not just dancing. There are many instrumental and vocal sequences. If you think that it's 100% dance, you'll be surprised."
Great Mixture of Irish Dancing, Singing and Music
Dr. D. | Brew City, WI | 03/26/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I have seen Ragus live two years in a row at the Milwaukee Irish Fest and attended every one of their performances. Their performances are a great mixture of Irish dancing, singing and music.

I waited patiently for them to bring out a DVD and it was well worth it. The DVD was done professionally with very good video and sound.

Great traditional song, music & dance
Richard Byers | Astoria, OR United States | 04/11/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is the real deal! A fantastic group of musicians and dancers make this a great show of traditional Irish dance & song. There is no "star" to hog center stage, but a very balanced show of music, song & dance. Well worth the price - get this and enjoy!"
Just beautiful
Volunteer of America | Austin, Texas | 02/24/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Have watched this DVD a great many times and can say there's not a moment on it that's less than superb. Except perhaps the audience's inexplicable failure to join with enthusiasm in the chorus of "Green Grow the Rushes Oh". The dancing is marvellous, but the music! The haunting sounds of the band's pipes, strings and ?organ are extraordinarily atmospheric and the mood builds steadily. The "Song from Connemara" is one of the most lovely, poignant pieces I have ever heard. If you like Irish music and dance, you will watch this again and again. It has none of the brassy glitz of some more famous shows; it's simply a totally professional performance with some of the most accomplished folk singers, dancers and musicians alive putting everything they've got into it."
