A Gradam Ceoil TG4 archive was launched the ITMA during the Willie Clancy Music School this week.
2018 is the forty sixth summer school to take place in Miltown Malbay and it concludes on Sunday. Instrument and dance classes, lectures, workshops, recitals and céilithe all ran through the week.
Scoil Samhraidh Willie Clancy have had a long association with the Irish Traditional Music Archive and the ITMA Field Recording team were in attendance this year as usual to record all official events.
This year was also the one hundredth anniversary of Willie Clancy’s birth. Coinciding with this, the Gradam Ceoil TG4 archive was launched during the week of music. The series has been re-imagined to include a fully searchable landmark digital archive, it is the richest collection of contemporary Irish traditional music performance available online.
