The featured album was the long awaited self-titled release from USHER'S ISLAND (Vertical Records). Five well regarded performers of trad and trad style Irish music (Donal Lunny, Andy Irvine, Paddy Glackin, Mike McGoldrick and John Doyle) combine forces to present a fine collection of material, all at a predictably high standard. Some of the voices are a little older than when we first heard them almost 50 years ago, but the quality is definitely still there. The tune sets are beautifully lush in places, reminiscent of Lunny and Irvine's Planxty period. The following tracks were scattered through the program:
