Traditional Irish Music
A Chairde / Dear Friends. You’ll find an Easter present from the Irish Traditional Music Archive at this link: 191 interactive music scores of fiddle music from the Cork-Kerry border region of Sliabh Luachra, which have been transcribed by ITMA staff from the unique fiddle tablature of the Kerry fiddle master Pádraig O’Keeffe (1887–1963). The original manuscripts from which the transcriptions come are also available in original facsimile here as they were donated to ITMA. You can use the interactive scores to play the melodies on your computer, read them from screen, or print them out using the attached PDF versions; for an introduction to our Interactive Scores facility click here.
