A popular and long- running Canadian-lrish folk group that saw their begin- ning in the 1960s, The Irish Rovers are particularly well- known for their hit recording of Shel Silverstein's "The Unicorn," although a great many more of their charac- teristically happy and oft- comical songs remain well- known to this day. In 2010, the band celebrated 45 years as recording artists, with their latest CD, "Gracehill Fair" and filming the DVD/ television special "Home in Ireland", shot entirely on- location, throughout the northwest coast of Ireland. George Millar says, "It's ba- sically The Irish Rovers "Coming Home" because this is our home, for all of us. We want to show the world what the northwest Irish coast is like. I've traveled the world now for over 40 years and there's nothing like it."
