John Joe (Bernard Hill) and his traditional Celtic folk band are ready to defend their championship at County Clare's annual All-Ireland Traditional Music Competition when his prodigal brother, Jimmy (Colm Meaney), returns home from Liverpool with his new band. The sibling rivalry is further complicated by embittered piano player Maisie (Charlotte Bradley), the mother of Jimmy's abandoned child, and the burgeoning romance between rival bandmembers, Anne (Andrea Corr) and Teddy (Shaun Evans).

    A gem of a movie! This was a sweet movie with all the wonderful Irish elements a person could want: family mis-communication, drinking, fiddles, fun music, and a sweet love story. Very well done, with some very good, recognizable actors...

    I loved this if im honest, it was funny, light hearted and easy to watch. The cast are superb and Colm Meaney pulls off another great performance. If your not looking for something too heavy then this is the movie for you, remember dont take yourself too seriously!
