Subject: International Music Recordings

I have been sorting out our large and somewhat ungainly collection of recordings in order to pass them on and, hopefully make them as widely available as possible
This includes a large number of International recordings picked up abroad or given to us - mostly albums produced elsewhere - Eastern Europe, Greece North Africa.....
Also included is a considerable number of radio programmes (in English) on various aspects of "world music" - (useless term which always reminds me of n elderly fiddler looking for traditional music in a shop in Dublin and, not finding anything in the 'World Music' section, asked, "Have you anything from anywhere else?")
While I am happy that they go into an archive somewhere, it would be good if they are passed on to people who could make immediate use of them other than getting someone to unlock a cupboard somewhere!!
I'm digitising them and, where available, coupling them with any notes.
Some time, hopefully this year, they will be deposited at the World Music Department of Limerick University.
Is the anywhere or anybody else that can make use of them
Advice would be appreciated.

Sorry - should have said, "traditional music" of course - we've always tended to avoid the erzatz stuff churned out for tourist consumption

I'd like to see what you've got from Hungary, Romania and Turkey, and I know people who may be interested in stuff from the southern Balkans - let me know when you've got it catalogued.

"let me know when you've got it catalogued."
Will do Jack

I have a largish (12" X 15" X 18") box full of sheet music and books that I am willing to donate to anyone interested in Folk (in the wider sense). PM me and let us see if we will be at the same festivals. eg Upton, Chippenham, Sidmouth, Towersey, Bromyard and hopefully Ely.

I did have a booklet on Swedish music which I gave to a member of Bristol Spelmanslag. He found tunes he had not seen before.

Some of us remember that some of Bert Lloyd's European music books appeared in the bargain boxes of local second-hand bookshops after they had been donated to a London Music college
