For anyone particularly obsessed with the music of the Cork-Kerry border, there is a Facebook page dedicated to such:
http://www.facebook.com/sliabheys
Please come over to peruse or post your own photos, links, anecdotes, whathaveyou.
Most of the content is also available at http://friendsofsliabhluachra.tumblr.com/ for those allergic to Facebook, but you will be missing out on the comments which have been entertaining and illuminating.

Thanks.

How do you feel about photo copyrights? Image

Padraig O'Keeffe's notation system.

If I am not mistaken that is the notation that Padraig O'Keeffe gave to his students, indicating finger placement and bowing. A tablature, I suppose.

Crossed there, twice. I just inserted that bit about the POK system of notation. There are some boks with copies of POK manuscripts, ITMA has recently added a few MSS as well, may be on their website.

The lines of the stave indicate the strings of the fiddle. So the middle line would come out as

Ad df ed AD| AD de fe ef| Ad df ed BD|Ad de fd d2|

The slur lines indicate slurred bowing and presumably the V signs indicate up bows. Pretty complete system!

Any of your photos on there, Peter?

Two from the same set as the one I posted above, the POK statue in Scartaglen. And a Billy Clifford one.

Actually, it looks like the spaces represent the strings. But yes, that's clear. Thanks, guys.
