Music from 78 RPM records originally recorded between 1923 and 1942.
Beautiful 36 page booklet and 1 CD, with 24 tracks.
Irish women have been creating traditional music recordings since 1918.
With a few exception, female musicians who recorded in the golden age of the 1920's, 1930's and early 1940's have languished in obscurity.
