I enjoy your newsletter very much and look forward to each new issue.
I am a musician and a graduate student in ethnomusicology at the
University of California in Santa Cruz. I am doing research into
the Irish song tradtion and am having a hard time finding good general
source material. What I'd like to find is general info on songs, regions,
styles, backgrounds, etc. Perhaps there is a bibliography that I have not
found yet. I have a particular interest in mouth music and Waulking songs.
If you can help in any way it would be greatly appreciated.
I'm also trying to learn Irish and am seeking a teacher in the San Francisco
bay area. I'll be in Ireland this summer and hope to have a start in the
language and also a geeod general knowledge of the song tradtion.
Thank you for any help you can give and keep uo the great newsletter.
