Kiltartan Road runs through the barony of Kiltartan in County Galway, Ireland. It was there, through the work of Yeats, Gregory, Synge, and their companions, that Irish folklore and folk speech entered into the mainstream of English poetry and theatre.
"The band Kiltartan Road was formed in Chicago in 1993 to perform, "In the Deep Heart's Core: A Mystic Cabaret," Joseph Sobol's musical theatre piece composed and adapted from the works of W. B. Yeats. The band performed, recorded and toured in various forms until 2005, and has featured such luminaries of traditional and contemporary music as singers Kathy Cowan, Tom Orf, and David Lutken, pianist Beth Falcone, and fiddlers Andrew Bird, Laura Risk, and Clay Buckner. Kiltartan Road Music remains the record label and publishing company for Joseph Sobol's music and productions."
"In the Deep Hearts Core" has received international acclaim.
Here are some reviews and awards bestowed on the work."
