Irish Traditional Music

Irish Music is a living tradition with its own procedures and disciplines, and this pocket guide attempts to define these in a contemporary context and to distinguish them from the conventions of classical music. Ciaran Carson outlines the various techniques of playing and singing, with reference to the main instruments. He also includes pointers to pub etiquette, a discussion of tuning and intonation, and guides to further reading and listening.
