The Music of Clare: Clare County Council
The Music of Clare is an online project allowing immediate access to all those interested in the music of County Clare and presents a sample of the rich musical culture of the county of Clare. It enables those interested to listen to traditional tunes associated with County Clare, played by musicians who are from the county or who have lived in it for many years. It includes transcriptions of the featured tunes that are simply designed to help anyone who wishes to learn the basic notes of a tune so as to be able to play it.
Compiled by Clare County Library with the support of the County Arts Office it provides a sample of Clare music, although we do hope it does represent the best of a rich tradition.
2015 saw the project develop to include the Singers and Songs of Clare, featuring over 400 recordings of Clare traditional songs from the 50’s and 60’s.
