Blast from the Past: The Bunratty Castle Singers
Michele Erdvig of www.irelandyes.com pointed me to this “archival” footage from an old Eurovision segment from 1971! It features the Bunratty Castle Singers and many “classic” (or is that stereotypical) scenes in Ireland. The music is great craic and the scenes offer a perfect blend of cheesy and nostalgic. Gotta love the 70s.
You can still attend a medieval banquet at Bunratty… I kind of wish they brought back the costumes from the video though. They offer a traditional music night in the Corn Barn at Bunratty as well (in fact, Michele tells me that the fiddler from the video still performs at the Corn Barn).
