Music and Songs of County Clare
This page links to four separate collections: one with over 400 songs from Clare singers, and three separate collections of live session recordings from Clare musicians from the 1960s to the 1990s totaling over sixty hours of traditional Irish music. The collection of annotated tunes associated with County Clare unfortunately seems to be down, but the rest more than makes up for that. Song lyrics are transcribed and tune lists provided for each session. All hosted by the Clare County Library and playable on SoundCloud. An amazing and monumental resource with rare recordings of singers and musicians all playable for free. Would take a lifetime to sort through, it seems. Oh, and as if all that weren’t enough, this also has recordings of the late Paddy Fahey - need I say more?# Added by Daniel Parker .

Zahatar: Acoustic String Band’s “The Little Country”album on Kickstarter through July 4th!
We want to have the opportunity to record an album version of The Little Country song cycle, which began as single melody lines in the appendix of one of Charles de Lint’s urban fantasy novels from the early 90’s. These tunes had never before been arranged for string band in their entirety, until now. Zahatar recently held a sold-out performance of the song cycle, and recording an album is our next endeavor.# Added by Christopher Grano .
