The fall season of Boston College’s Gaelic Roots Music, Song, Dance, Workshop, and Lecture Series will showcase musical traditions from various regions of Ireland. Under the direction of ten-time All-Ireland Fiddle Champion Séamus Connolly (Sullivan Family Artist-in-Residence, Center for Irish Programs), the Gaelic Roots series brings world-renowned performers and presenters to Connolly House and to other Boston College venues.
In an ongoing collaboration with the Center for Irish Programs, the Burns Library Irish Music Center records most of these events for its Irish Music Archives, documenting Irish music in America. The list of Gaelic Roots series recordings includes online audio and video recordings. The center updates these lists regularly as recordings are created and reformatted for use.
For more information about the Gaelic Roots recordings or other music collections at the Burns Library, please contact the Irish Music Center at firstname.lastname@example.org. The center’s archives include commercial and field recordings, video, sheet music, manuscripts, photographs, memorabilia, musical instruments, books about music, and other items. We look forward to hearing from you.
