What was the traditional Irish Music festival compared to Woodstock?

I once saw an Irish documentary program about a traditional Irish music festival (I believe it took place sometime in the 60′s or early 70′s, corresponding with the 2nd Celtic music revival. I remember the program being compared to Woodstock (although traditional instead of counter-cultural).

Any idea what festival this was and how I can learn more about it? I would love to see that documentary again.

  1. I don’t know what Woodstock is but there is an annual festival of Irish music and culture called ‘Oireachtas na Samhna’. This has been happening for about one hundred years or so, could this be what you saw?
