Clare Library's project on the culture of the county has taken another step by putting a number of collections of private recordings on-line : Traditional Music of Clare.

A tremendous resource for anyone interested in Irish Music and Clare music in particular.

Also check out Clare Songs and Singers a and perhaps the Gumby photo collection of traditional musicans.

I browse around in each of the sections and yes, indeed this is a wonderful resource. Every library ought to do this wherever the location. TY

Warm and humid today with some light sprinkles.

Just to emphasise: the on-line music collection, The Taylor, Healy and Carroll/MacKenzie collections have gone public only this week. I dropped over a fair bunch of pics from the nineties this morning, they'll be added over the next few days.

Hi Mr Gumby

A remarkable collection of photos and fantastic music. Thanks for the link.

The photos I bought from you, maybe 15 years ago, are still hanging on the wall and have pride of place.

Many thanks and I hope that you enjoy Willie Week this year. I cannot make it.

Keep well

John

Hi John,

Sorry to hear you won't make this year. It looks like it's going to be a wet one though, we used up the good weather in May.

Unfortunately the executive librarian who is responsible for setting up the Clare Library's web resources, Maureen Comber, is leaving the library by the end of this week so it's uncertain if this resource is going to be maintained and added to in the future. Perhaps this is the time to give full kudos to Maureen for a job well done and for setting up this mighty resource.

Thanks for the photos Peter, I'm enjoying them very much - still going through them in fact. And thanks to Ms. Comber for making it happen.

I'm starting to feel guilty about the weather; the missus and I were there all the month of May and a few days beyond and it was gorgeous weather the whole time - much like the fabled spring/summer of '76, which I also spent entirely there. Hardly a drop of rain either time.

Write up on the Library Blog

And a few more pics that went up today, the last batch, I am afraid.

Memories of some great nights (and days) attached to those images.

Mr. G. Lovely lovely job.
How would I go about getting a print of one (or more) of these?

That third photo (whistle, fiddle, flute) is marvelous. Do you have the names of the players?

Best wishes.

Steve

That was a great night, around Easter 1992 or 93. Gussie Russell, Paddy Killourhy and Liscannor man Gerald O'Loughlin in Murphy's, St Bridget's Well on the back of the Cliffs of Moher.
