Masters of their Craft
Various Tara Artists
Masters Of Their Craft is a compilation release on the Tara Music label containing eighteen tracks from some of the foremost artists and groups in the world of Irish music. Over the last thirty years Tara Music has been privileged to have recorded and worked with artists such as Clannad, Planxty, Shaun Davey, Stockton’s Wing, Christy Moore, Moving Hearts and many more. This compilation portrays these artists performing at their best, with their music spanning genres from World Music to Contempory Irish and Folk.
Much of the music on this album has successfully pushed the musical boundaries of Irish traditional music to a more contempory level. This would be depicted by composer Shaun Davey composing music for Irish Uilleann Pipes and Orchestra, or Andy Irvine for the introduction and integration of Bulgarian dance tunes into Planxty’s repertoire, or the fusion of Irish and Spanish pipes music with Liam O’Flynn and Carlos Núñez……. the examples are many.

LIAM O'FLYNN'S The Piper's Call
When Liam O'Flynn recorded his album The Piper's Call he got together with Emmy winning directors Philip King and Nuala O'Connor to capture, on film, not only the music from The Piper's Call but also an insight into Liam and his musical background.
The results are so visually stunning that Tara Music has released a specially extended version of this television documentary on DVD.
The Piper's Call DVD includes all the music from The Piper's Call album, being performed by a selection of Ireland's top musicians who provide a perfect setting for Liam's piping. In addition Liam is joined by Special Guests Sean Keane - Fiddle & Matt Molloy - flute (of The Chieftains), Mark Knopfler - guitar Galician piper Carlos Núñez and The Irish Chamber Orchestra conducted by Micheál O'Súilleabháin.
