Focus: Irish Traditional Music is an introduction to the instrumental and vocal traditions of the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland, as well as Irish music in the context of the Irish diaspora.Ireland's size relative to Britain or to the mainland of Europe is small, yet its impact on musical traditions beyond its shores has been significant, from the performance of jigs and reels in pub sessions as far-flung as Japan and Cape Town, to the worldwide phenomenon of Riverdance. Focus: Irish Traditional Music interweaves dance, film, language, history, and other interdisciplinary features of Ireland and its diaspora. The accompanying CD presents both traditional and contemporary sounds of Irish music at home and abroad.

During my Irish studies, I took a year long program with the author-- using her book. It proved to be very insightful, easy to read, and thorough. It has been praised here and in Ireland as a success. The author's focus and intention is to clearly explain the progression of Irish music in an accessible way to enhance the reader's understanding of Irish cosmology. This is an educational textbook.

As other reviewers have said this incredible work by Sean Williams is a gem. As a text for college courses this book offers an impressive store of knowledge to the reader and more than perhaps anything else provides the proper context for discovering Irish music for the first time, or exploring it further.

From her historical framing of the subjects dealt with, to the examples of music provided and her treatment of both instrumental and vocal music, Williams does not miss a beat or hit a wrong note. Her section on the vocal tradition of sean-nos is particularly well executed and on its own would make this book worth reading.

Williams' examination of Irish Music is not only quite in-depth but also displays a balance in treatment that is rare. She is able to, seemingly effortlessly, navigate through the presentation of information without pontificating or biasing the reader. She is her self an accomplished traditional Irish musician, (a delightful sean-nos singer,) but is not shy in acknowledging that such things as Irish Punk music and Riverdance have a place at the table and are deserving of consideration. It is really a joy to see someone so steeped in "traditional" music give a fair shake to more "modern" expressions of Irish music and culture.

More than anything else, this book was enjoyable to read, and was more of a page-turner than one might expect from an academic text series. Most skilled instrumentalists will tell you that a masterwork instrument is so well crafted that it almost seems to play itself. This book is of that caliber, and is a accurate extension of the author's own expertise on the subject. Pick up Focus: Irish Traditional Music, open the first page, and let this book practically read itself.

Sean Williams knows her stuff - and even better, she communicates her wealth of knowledge with an accessible and engaging writing style. She explains and illuminates the ins and outs of Irish music and culture without using dry, overly-scholarly language, making this a perfect book for *anyone* interested in knowing more about Irish Traditional Music.

This book is wonderfully layered, full of basic information, but also a deeper examination of the roots and branches of Irish music (including a nod to U2). Whether a seasoned session player or someone who knows almost nothing about the music, there's something for every reader to enjoy and discover. I'm a professional musician and teacher, and I was neither bored nor bemused while reading this book -- it works on so many levels.

The included CD, with annotations, is a great resource, as well as being chock full of fabulous traditional music.

Highly recommended for anyone who has ever listened to Danny Boy, tried to dance a jig, or worn green on St. Patrick's Day!
