Conor Ward - "Thomas ‘Blind’ Kernan (1807-1887): The County Longford Fiddle Master"

The fiddle master, Thomas Kernan (c1807-1887) of County Longford, was the figurehead of Irish fiddle music in the south Leitrim/County Longford region during the 19th century. This talk will examine Kernan’s musical legacy and will explore a pre-Famine manuscript transcribed by Kernan between 1844-46.
