Subject: Honouring our Traditional Music

It has been proposed to establish an annual music school in Ennis, County Clare, remembrance of fiddle player Tommy Peoples starting in 2020 - a fitting tribute to a great artist.

The problem I have with it, based on little information I admit (I read the, or 'an, article last week), is that it is once again driven by a local councilor who appears only motivated by the business it will bring to the town. It's about money, business and the music is only used as a peg to hang it on. 'Look how many people it brings to Miltown' was the argument. Yes, it does, but Miltown's Willie week is based on educational principles, its primary aim is to educate and preserve the music.

Tribute to Tommy Peoples, a great thing but for feck's sake do it for the right reasons.

I agree totally Peter, but as long as it is left in the hands of the musicians rather than the politicians everybody wins
Hopefully, Clare music is strong enough to stand its own ground rather than allow the cash registers to dominate
We'll see

Hey you lovely Irish people in Clare - Is my friend's cousin/family 'Christy Barry' still playing music in the pubs? Havent seen him/them in 40 yrs!! Went hitch hiking around the area (also guests of the Hogans in Inagh - my friends relatives)

Im actually looking for the story (if there is one) behind some songs in a piece called Highland Sequence - I have the 'story' behind 3 of the medley (Jack broke da prison door' - but not 'Sleep sound ida Mornin' ' - Just wanted a little introduction when the sax choir im in plays this Highland reel - Not sure how to find out the stories behind these tunes - we mostly play other types of music (Bach, swing, some arranged by one of the sax players etc) Cheers - Lise Sharkey   liseernie@yahoo.co.uk

Those tunes are from Shetland, not the Highlands. Search for Tom Anderson's "Haand Me Doon Da Fiddle" (free PDF) - the stories are there.

Good.
Peter, I am all in favour of encouraging traditional music, however the word presrving always worries me, preserving is ok as along as it allows evolvement.

Christy Barry, as as far as I know, lives in or around Doolin and ply in The Doolin Ceili Band
Never go there so I'm not sure how up-to-date this is

sounds like a grand idea to me.

and actually you need other activities and organised attractions for people who just turn up for the atmosphere to make an enterprise like that sustainable.

not everyone who goes to Stratford is a Shakespeare scholar.

As a fan of Shakespeare. I remember coming out of the Swan Theatre one night, and hearing this pained American accent saying, what was that load of crap about!

Another time I remember this Yank earnestly videoing folks going in and out of the Thatched entrance to MacDonalds.
