"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.

Our home burned to the ground a few months back and, out of the tens of thousands of items that I/we are cataloging, there will be only a relative few that we will replace -- this is one, however, that I really wanted again; I just re-purchased.

I love this quiet music-travelogue-personal journaling in video of The Chieftains! Since Ireland is one of my favorite spots in our world, "going back there", any way, any time, literally or figuratively, is a treat. These good men share their music and their passion for place, home, people in ways that just suits me. I love the "homey", simple, approachable, "real" production of this video -- not flashy, not slick; just a lot of quiet heart, was what I found.

Have given this as a gift in years past; "gifted" myself, now, in these trying times!

Excellent music and one-on-one interviews/reflections form the Chieftans members. My only wishes would be: (1) to see more of the beautiful Emerald Isle countryside and (2) to have a better video transfer (the film looked like it was shot in 240- or 360p--very poor resolution).

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.

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.
