Rob O Some "teachable" info on Irish Folk (38) Some 'teachable' info on Irish Folk 15 Sep 98

A teaching collegue of mine heard that I played Irish traditional music and invited me to play a few songs for her world literature classes. Like wise another collegue who reaches European and American history asked me to play some of my music when they get to the 19th century.

I was curious if any one knew of some resources for some background on some of the music. We wanted to take the approach of how times effect music.

The songs I know best are:
Kilkelly, Ireland
Seven Drunken Nights
Wild Rover
Star of the County Down
Rambling Irishman (though I don't have the chords)
Spring Hill Mine Disaster
and a few others...
and if you have any suggestions I'd love to hear them.

Thanks all,

Rob O
