Tomás Ó Canainn
Traditional Music in Ireland
This classic text, originally published in 1978, is a really useful and informative overview of the style and structure of Irish traditional music as performed by conservative practicioners in the 20th century. With profiles of individual musicians, seperate chapters on pipes, fiddle and sean-nós singing, and plenty of notated musical examples, it explains clearly and effectively what are the defining characteristics of the tradition.
