Europeana

http://www.europeana.eu/portal/

Multilingual online repository of European cultures— text, pictures, videos, audio, it’s there. Access to music from the Irish Traditional Music Archives among other archives and libraries across the continent.

A search for "fiddle" for example will yield as it’s 2nd result "Parlophone Irish 78s, 1929," which will give you information about the collection. Click on the blue audio symbol and you’ll get the actual material, including ‘Clonlara Quadrilles’ and ‘Tipperary Flings’ from Sean Madden on accordion, not to mention jigs, reels, airs and other tunes by other players on other instruments. Anyway, I’m excited about it. ;)
