Film / Paul Taylor, director Dublin Film Festival on Off The Beaten Track

"The late Tommy Barton was "The Gentleman Busker" of Dublin. He knew his music and inside and outside of the pubs, they knew that he knew. Now three of his exiled sons, musicians each, return to retrace his steps and to rediscover both his musical heritage and its legacy. With the aid of some stellar names from the Traditional scene. And with the company of Jaap Mees's fascinated video camera. 
A low-budget, high-achieving, lyrical documentary, about a no-budget form of feel good entertainment. And its bloodlines."
