The Irish Tune Composers’ Pages
A New Website Dedicated to Composers of Traditional Irish Music from O’Carolan to Reavy to Fahey to McGoldrick# Added by Dave Flynn .
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.# Added by Daemco .
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. ;)

Celtic Rambler - Celtic Art & Design
Following the trail of the Wild Geese and taking a wrong turn or two, "Celtic Rambler" ended up in the Celtic heartland of France and found a home-from-home, complete with green grassy fields, brown cows and blight on his potatoes. This site is a showcase for artwork inspired by the shared mythological culture of Ireland and central France fused with modern technology. These Celtic-style patterns can be adapted to a wide range of projects and materials, offering you the chance to buy custom-made gifts or commission a truly unique image for your personal projects.# Added by CelticRambler .
The Session (Photos)
The Session on Flickr is a place for photos taken at Irish Traditional Music Sessions. It doesn’t matter whether they are taking place in a pub, somebody’s house, on a boat or elsewhere.# Added by Ah, Surely! .
We also welcome good shots of sessions from other traditions (breton, scottish, english, acadian, Cape Breton, etc.).
The photos should preferably not be of gigs or staged events and if possible they should not have been taken with a flash (unless the flash is not noticable) to retain the atmosphere.
Please add some information such as who is in the shot and where & when it was taken.
