Music, song and poetry are an integral part of Irish heritage and history. References to their importance are found in Ireland’s earliest recorded written texts, and references to music are present in Ireland’s most ancient historical manuscripts and famed mythological tales and stories. Ireland is a nation of singers and musicians, and its national emblem, “The Harp of Erin,” is a musical instrument. In his lecture, Derek will discuss the narrative song and ballad – the oldest and often most neglected parts of Ireland’s musical and literary tradition – and how Irish heritage still influences our lives and music today.
