sian, west wales Folk Music Collecting and New Media (17) RE: Folklore: Folk Music Collecting and New Media 14 Dec 10

I was at a seminar at the Earagael Festival in July (Letterkenny, Donegal) where The Henry Girls (local) and The Foxhunt from West Virginia were explaining how they put together their tour of Ireland and Scotland over the internet - rehearsing, recording, etc. When they did finally get together "in the flesh" they had a lot of the prep work out of the way. We'd been to the concert the night before - very good indeed.

BTW, about 10 years ago there was an attempt by trendies in London to get WBI widely used to refer to face-to-face in the flesh meetings. WBI = Warm Body Interface. Honest.

Oh - and I think the recently launched People's Collection here in Wales could be an interesting vehicle for trad performers to get more music out of the archives and into public use ...
