'Come West Along the Road' returns for a thirteenth series becoming the longest running television programme on Irish traditional music.

Nicholas Carolan introduces the thirteenth series of 'Come West Along the Road' describing the programme as a mix of "historical performances of Irish traditional instrumental music, song and dance in varying social contexts".

The first item is a piece from 'The Pure Drop' series first shown in September 1990. Séamus Ó Beaglaoich on accordion and Steve Cooney on guitar play polkas for set dancers.
