Alice, the Galway people keep saying they're getting this online, but I suppose it's the time element. Alice is referring to the Ritchie-Pickow Archive, housed in the Hardiman Library at University College Galway, in Ireland. It consists of George's and my work during my Fulbright Year, 1952-53. We recorded and photographed musicians in Ireland, England and Scotland, but this archive has only the Irish materials. It is set up as a traveling exhibit, available to any organization or school in Ireland. It's very appealing to me, because, as one walks around looking at photos of the singers or players, their music is playing in the background.

Norann, My little teaching tape from Homespun is strictly for beginners who want to learn to play the simple, old way. Homespun went onward & upward with a fine teaching series by Lorraine Lee Hammond, who is a great teacher of all the fancy stuff. Good luck! Jean
