Top Traditional musicians Mick O’Brien (uilleann pipes/flute/whistle), Mayo’s own Emer Mayock (flute/whistle) and Aoife Ní Bhriain (fiddle) recently released a CD entitled Tunes from the Goodman Manuscripts, featuring repertoire drawn from original sources collected by Canon James Goodman in the mid-19th century in his native province of Munster. The manuscripts, which since his death have been held in the Library of Trinity College provide unique insights into the evolution of Irish traditional music and are of great significance because they preserve much of the traditional music of the south of Ireland as it was sung and played in the years before traditional culture there was devastated by the Great Famine of the 1840s. From these manuscripts, Mick, Emer and Aoife have chosen music ranging from unusual versions of tunes in the modern repertoire to those apparently unique to the collection. A night of top Trad on the cards.
