Traditional Music & Song in Co. Meath - 300 page hardback book.
This book gathers what is known about traditional music & song in the county, from O'Carolan in the early 1700s to the young musicians playing & teaching today. It reveals the key role that Comhaltas Ceoltóirí Éireann has played in advancing music & song since the early 1960s, it looks at the music of pipers, harpers, fiddlers, the céilí bands and the concertina players, and it reviews the song tradition and the influence of the Gaeltacht. It shows a vibrant community sustaining a vibrant tradition and being, in its turn, sustained by it.
As this is a 300 page hardback, there is a €10 postage charge.
