Their seven-person line-up permits them a formidable variety of instrumental combinations, and these are displayed to the full in this well-filmed live video, both in dance tunes and behind the singing of Muireann Nic Amhlaoibh. Particularly entertaining is the solo set, where the musicians play in turn and then walk off, leaving just Donnchadh Gough, who seems to hit the bodhrán like Bruce Lee hitting a punch bag!
There are also several well-chosen special guests.
In addition to the concert (in surround sound), there are interviews with each musician, and a segment on the band's history. The only extra I found less than fascinating was "On the Road", which is basically a sequence of home movies made on tour; but even that is skilfully put together.
Making a total of well over 3 hours, clearly a labour of love, and all for a few bucks more than the price of a CD.
I've never seen better than this. If you get a chance to see them live, don't miss it.
P.S. At the start of his interview, Dónal Clancy plays a lovely little piece in DADGAD tuning, the title of which is never given.
I had a chance to ask him: it's called "Dog Rock", after a rock he used to fish off that is behind where he's sitting in the DVD.

This group is probably one of the best Irish performing bands around. Their performance has to be viewed to truly appreciate. I just wish I could see them perform in person. Read morePublished 24 months ago by Barry J. Dugan
I love this band. First saw the singer on Transatlantic Sessions 5 and really liked her voice. Then I saw some clips on Youtube of this DVD, and had to get the disk. Read morePublished on August 20, 2013 by David N. Paul
It's a great show by a great band, with some fun extra features stuck in at the end. I learned about Danu in a music class and have been enjoying their music since then.Published on January 18, 2013 by Jeff Coonen

I first saw this group play recently at UC Berkeley where they got standing ovations for some really terrific musical moments. People were dancing in the aisles. Read morePublished on April 3, 2012 by Mark G

The performance is excellent and those guys are excellent musicians. Sadly the quality of the DVD is more VHS-like. Read more
