A look back at the life and songs of the late Traditional Ballad Singer Liam Weldon. A strong advocate for aural tradition and notoriously wary of self promotion, he left little behind in the way of recordings but his legacy is more alive today than ever, flourishing in a new generation of folk singers.

Recently discovered archive footage, stories from family, friends and admirers, performances from Damien Dempsy, Radie Peat [Lankum], Lisa O’Neill and many more, form the narrative of this deeply insightful investigation. Pulling focus on a legendary character that Ireland almost forgot, were it not for the vast footprint his songs and lyrics have left behind in the consciousness of the Irish diaspora.
