A documentary on the making of Lambeg drums and some Orange songs sung to Irish airs.

Proinsias Ó Conluain speaks with a drum maker Robert Johnson on The Sandy Row and explores Orange songs and Irish airs with David Hammond. The recordings were made in 1964 before the "troubles" and so Proinsias can enjoy, somewhat nervously, a joke about the procurement of drum skins from "Fenians" in less tense times. 'Fenian' is just one of the terms used to describe a Catholic or Nationalist in the North of Ireland. It is somewhat derogatory. The quotation used "Come all you loyal Orangemen and in full chorus sing" is from one of the songs sung by David Hammond.
