ITMA and Scoil Samhraidh Willie Clancy 2020: An evening of Traditional Singing in Irish and English
Following the lamented cancellation of the 48th Scoil Samhraidh Willie Clancy, we are pleased to announce that ITMA and the Summer School are collaborating to share a series of recordings and events online.
With so many of the finest tutors, tradition bearers and performers participating annually in a wide and varied programme, the Summer School has proven to be an exceptionally rich source for ITMA field recording. The amassed audio-visual recordings of solo and ensemble instrumental playing, unaccompanied singing, step-dancing and set-dancing, and lectures, are an invaluable traditional music archive of national importance.
ITMA will broadcast highlights of Scoil Samhraidh Willie Clancy on itma.ie
