Irish fiddler Michael Coleman is featured on this week's episode.

We travel back to the early recording era to hear digital re-masters of 10-inch shellac discs and even wax cylinders on which such legendary musical talents as Michael Coleman, James Morrison, and James Scott Skinner were captured for posterity.
