James Goodman (1828–1896) from Dingle, Co. Kerry, was a canon of the Church of Ireland and Professor of Irish in Trinity College Dublin and he compiled an outstanding Irish traditional music manuscript collection containing more than 2,300 tunes.
To mark the occasion of the reprint of Tunes of the Munster Pipers Volume 1 and the announcement of the ITMA/TCD Goodman Digital Project, you are invited to an afternoon (14:00-16:00) of short presentations about Canon James Goodman and his collection. Guest speakers will be Lisa Shields (co-editor of Tunes of the Munster Pipers Volume 2), Roy Stanley (Music Librarian, TCD), Nicholas Carolan (Director Emeritus ITMA) and Emer Mayock (member of the Goodman Trio).
At 16:00, Grace Toland (ITMA Director) will formally launch both the Tunes of the Munster Pipers Volume 1 reprint and the ITMA/TCD Goodman Digital Project.
Admission to both events is free.
Later on the same day (19:00), a non-free concert with the Goodman Trio (Mick O’Brien, uilleann pipes, Emer Mayock, flute & Aoife Ní Bhriain, fiddle) will take place. Tickets are EUR 10 and can be booked here.
