Jack Hickman - Kingston, ON Ancient Irish Songs (31) RE: Ancient Irish Songs 03 Apr 99


Greetings, All

I've just finished reading a neat little book entitled "A Pocket History of Irish Traditional Music" by Gearoid O'Hallmhurainpublished by the O'Brien Press, Dublin, ISBN O-86278-555-3. In it he traces Irish music as far back as Early and Mediaeval Ireland. I can't recall if he specifically dealt with songs or ballads, but if you can get a hold of this book, it might answer your questions. Even if it doesn't, it's an easy and interesting read for anyone with an interest in Irish music.

Keep the Faith.
