Interview – Irish musician Andy Irvine. Irvine has been playing music since the 1960’s in famous Irish bands such as Planxty, Patrick Street, Mosaic and others. Here is discussion and comparison of the Irish traditional music scene and revival movement and the Hungarian authentic peasant music and dance house revival movement. „Tradition is the kind of thing that must change...if no one writes anything new...it’ll become a museum object. This may sound sad, but tradition must be fed, it must be carried forward. And hopefully the musicians have enough good taste to keep the music within the framework of the tradition".
