Description by OLDIES.com:

"Pete Seeger's Rainbow Quest" was a groundbreaking television series from the 1960s featuring authentic traditional music played in the atmosphere of an informal back porch picking party with guest appearances by well-known musicians from bluegrass, country, folk, blues, gospel and world music.

Program 1 - The Clancy Brothers & Tommy Makem with Tom Paxton: The Clancy Brothers and Tommy Makem were one of the most popular Irish singing acts of the 1960s. Forgoing the stereotypical maudlin Irish ballads in favor of lusty party songs and traditional American and Irish folk songs sung in close harmony, in a few short years they rose from the clubs of Greenwich Village to worldwide tours in front of packed houses. The Clancys are joined in the show by Tom Paxton, one of the finest singer/songwriters to emerge from New York's Greenwich Village coffee house circuit of the early 1960s.

Program 2 - Mamou Cajun Band: The Mamou Cajun Band is the traditional three-piece Cajun band of legendary accordionist Cyprien Landreneau, his cousin Adam Landreneau on fiddle, and percussionist Revon Reed on the triangle. Featuring traditional hard-hitting two-steps and sorrowful waltzes, the Mamou Cajun Band was one of the first groups to bring Cajun music to a wider audience, playing the Newport Folk Festival and touring Europe in the early 1960s.

Product Description:

The spirit of Irish music is alive and well, and embodied in the spirit of everything the Clancy Brothers do. Here, they are joined by Tommy Makem and The Cajun Band for a rambunctious run through of some Irish favorites.
