Movie Reviews

Musical history
Merle | 06/08/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"If you have seen the PBS pledge show and are wondering what's on this DVD: It's musical history, plain and simple, along the lines of "Will the Circle be unbroken" and Donal Lunny's "Bringing it all back home" in a perfect production on stage. Sadly it was Derek Bell's last concert but what a concert it was! All the Nashville stars (incl. Earl Scruggs) stood in line to play and record with the Chieftains (see also the 2 CD set). Green grass meets Bluegrass - awesome!"
A Musical Triumph
Merle | Everett, WA USA | 03/14/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I was astounded by this DVD and let me assure you I am not astounded very easily. It is pure magic from beginning to end. Watch the Chieftains, and the other performer's eyes, and you can see the magic working. From the first moment I was on my feet dancing.

There are so many highlights I can't mention them all but watch for those 2 Canadian brothers who jump out dancing near the beginning. Pure joy.

The combining of Irish and Bluegrass music was long in coming and this is the real deal."
Toe tapping music DVD
C. Averill | Arizona | 08/11/2009
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This is a wonderful DVD of toe tapping music. Well worth the price. Sadly, between each song there is an off-stage interview about the song or about the singer. This is a bit tedious for the person who just loves music and would like to enjoy the concert uninterrupted. I personally wish they would have completely separated the talk from the music. One has to advance to the next track to cut out the talk. Much of the talk would be interesting only to the singer's mother. All-in-all it is a great collection of celtic and Blue Grass music performed by some outstanding musicians."
Old Plank Road is Amazing
Kathleen Magrew | Minnesota USA | 04/24/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The Chieftains: Down the Old Plank Road - The Nashville Sessions
This is an amazing assembly of talent, with The Chieftains as the common thread. The DVD has music that is not on the CD's, so this is very unique. All of the musicians, singers, and dancers are the tops. I recommend it highly."
