Top picks: Major musical talent

September 23, 2010

Published by The Christian Science Monitor

The Celtic Tiger may be dead, but music will rightfully always be a source of pride on the Emerald Isle. The documentary “Music of Ireland – Welcome to America” picks up where last spring’s predecessor “Welcome Home” left off. Legendary contemporary Irish acts U2, Glen Hansard, Sinéad O’Connor, and others talk about trips to the principal’s office, busking on Grafton Street, and making it big in the US. The interviews reveal a refreshingly intimate side of the culturally permeating lasses and lads. Out on DVD Sept. 17 and airing on PBS in September (check local listings).
