Description Rowsome was one of the great stylemakers of Irish pipe music. 'Everywhere he went,' writes his friend Sean Reid in the notes, 'he added glamour to a unique, expressive and truly native instrument, a living link with the historic Irish nation.'

This collection, accurately remastered from recordings spanning 1926-1948, exhibits his highly personal approach in a programme of tunes both familiar and rare.
