Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The books in this series explore the lore, legends, music, and politics of Ireland. Their concise, pocket-sized format is well suited for aficionados as well as those who have a general interest in the topics. The role of musicians in Irish society arid the significance of the songs and dances they produced are explored in this overview of the Irish musical tradition. From the hypnotic harp music of early Ireland in the fifth century BC to the "Lord of the Dance and "Riverdance phenomena of the 1990s, a wide spectrum of historical sources, music, and folklore are examined, many of which provide a record of times long passed and little documented. Covering the entire breadth of Irish music, this book profiles the major musicians and musical groupings of each era and explores the continued popularity of Irish traditional music.

Synopsis:

A history of Irish traditional music, song and dance, from the mythological harp of the Dagda to "Riverdance". Exploring a wide range of historical sources, the book also traces the music of the Irish diaspora.
