Pocket guide to Irish music -- an archaie rural pursuit, an expression of the national spirit, sometimes even a threat to the status quo. This pocket guide places this living musical tradition in a contemporary context while distinguishing them from the conventions of classical music.
The various techniques of playing and singing are outlined with reference to the main instruments employed and their historical and social context.
