Stroud film maker, Matt Archibald writes: “Phil Dee introduces the concertina, before Tim Bannon reads a poem entitled “Host of the Air”, by “William Butler Yeats”, (accompanied by Mick Toher on guitar), by way of an introduction to the group, (by the same name as the poem) performing a live acoustic Traditional Irish jig, at Kingshill House: Dursley’s new arts centre. The poem is then followed by: “The Maids of Kilmore”, (an emigration song), sung by Phil Dee.”

The film sadly stops just before end of song but you can find more music from this band here.
