"The value of the well is not known until it goes dry"

This is the English translation of the Gaelic proverb written in the title above, and it applies to the title of this DVD by the Chieftains.

This became their last great work together before the retirement of fiddle player Martin Fay, and the untimely death of the delightfully eccentric virtuoso harp/pianist Derek Bell.

Each of the members are featured here in their homes and pubs, providing a picturesque context to the musical aural landscape that their compositions provide.

Paddy Moloney, bandleader/tin whistlist/uilleann pipist and general raconteur, explains in his relaxed brogue about the cottage parties in the central Irish mountains of his upbringing, and the wonderful native Irish music that filled those misty fields. The people of the countryside where he spent the summers of his youth were lively musicians and hellraisers, and Mr Moloney paints a vivid picture of endless jigs into long summer nights.

Kevin Conneff, bodranier and vocalist, takes us into his rural home by the fireside, and reminisces about the breadth of Irish traditional music and what it means to carry it forward as this band has done for the past forty years. He sings an acapella version of the "May Morning Dew" in a rustic church, and his vocal prowess is far greater than I'd previously given him credit.

Sean Keane and Martin Fay are prominently featured, being the central string players in the group. Mr Keane is a giant of man, yet very unassuming and soft-spoken. Their proficiency on the violins is breathtaking, and really gives texture to the "Chieftain" sound.

5.0 out of 5 stars Super DVD! July 8, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
What can I say? When it's "The Chieftains", it is top of the line. They are one of my all-time favorites. This DVD has additional features at the end which makes it very special. If you enjoy this group with their stupendous playing ability of traditional instruments - and their delightful, playful presence this a DVD you should have.

Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I truly enjoyed this DVD. I am sure anyone interested in The Chieftains would be delighted with this DVD. And since Netflix doesn't have it, as of 4/27/08, looks like you'll have to buy it like I did.

If you like Irish trad, you'll enjoy the music and scenery. A uniquely told story of a wonderful group. Worth the $15 or so spent on it. Have watched it numerous times.
