Enchantment

Ennis, Co. Clare, Ireland

For the January Scavenger Hunt topic of "Enchantment". For anyone who loves traditional Irish music, as I do, this was the place to be. It was pure enchantment to wander around the town and hear nothing but traditional music from one end to the other. Impromptu playing, as here, was everywhere.

Scanned from an old B&W photo.

what a full frame of fab faces, and tones as rich as the tunes...cool the players are young...at that time the Bothy Band had injected fresh energy into trad music, the Chieftains were on the rise, and Clare itself a long time hotbed for jigs and reels...well done to catch the spirit of the place and moment..
