Living the Tradition is now available through MusicFilmWeb wo have added the film to their catalogue. Here’s a quote on the MFW site. Thanks to Andy Markovitz for his support and writing the kind words!

“This is Irish music stripped of blarney and jig, but still reverberating with politics, myth, liveliness, and loss – of love, of land, even of books (this is Ireland, after all). Throughout de Ziah remains true to her own quest to help keep these songs relevant for modern audiences and to do justice to their stories and settings, even if that means waiting out the rain to play them (this is Ireland, after all). When you’re there, I still recommend you take a bar stool and raise a glass to (and maybe buy a glass for) the local musicians who are also living the tradition and keeping it strong. When you’re home, de Ziah’s musical travelogue offers another avenue into that rich territory.”
