Michael McGoldrick, Dezi Donnelly and Angela Durcan together with L'chaim Kapelye.

Imagine, back in the day (say 1880s-1900s), the huddled masses down in the valley of the river Irk; on the western bank, the largely Jewish communities of Red Bank and on the eastern side the largely Irish dwellers of Angel Meadow.

Their differences in languages, cultures and religions meant they probably kept largely to themselves but, imagine, amid the polluted mirk in which they lived and worked, what if they'd caught snatches of melody drifting across the Irk?

Maybe some were curious to follow the sounds and cross to the other side. Imagine what music might have ensued.
