The Inishowen Song Project

The once-remote rural peninsula of Inishowen in north-east Co Donegal has a rich living tradition of English-language song.

Funded locally by Inishowen Development Partnership, this project is a collaboration between the Inishowen Traditional Singers' Circle (ITSC) in Donegal and the Irish Traditional Music Archive (ITMA) in Dublin, to host song material collected in Inishowen on the Archive's website. This state-of-the-art digital facility provides local, national and international access to Inishowen song material in a professional archival and web-based environment.

Web visitors can hear digitally remastered recordings of songs while seeing the words and photographs of the singers. They can also read a facsimile of the book My Parents Reared Me Tenderly on the site, courtesy of the collectors, and view photographs and videos of the singers, courtesy of Jimmy McBride, Ken Garland and other photographers.
As ITMA has attended the Festival since 2007 to record contemporary singers, a selection of its recent videos are also available on the site.
