This DVD presents the finest bands, choirs and dance groups currently performing in the Isle of Man. It is designed to provide a snapshot of the wide variety of talented musicians and dancers who are available to represent the Isle of Man at festivals throughout Britain and abroad. With their distinctive sound and style, Manx performers are becoming increasingly in demand at Celtic and roots festivals around the world. Located at the heart of the British isles, the Isle of Man claims both Norse and Celtic roots, a cultural heritage which is reflected in its music and dance. This DVD presents sixteen groups – bands, choirs and dance ensembles – who display the exciting range of traditional and contemporary interpretations of Manx material. Costumed dance groups line up alongside traditional and electro-acoustic bands, and unaccompanied Gaelic choirs rub shoulders with skilled instrumentalists.
