Connections In Sound project

Connections in sound by Patrick Egan is what project I will do my 2nd lab on. This project investigates patterns of collecting and accessing traditional Irish music in North America. The project reviewed Irish music in 1850 to 2000. Irish music is popular in North America. Traditional Irish music had influenced country music in Nashville, Tennessee. Irish took their traditional music with them to America. Collections of Irish music are at Library of Congress in American Folklife Center. Library of Congress has 2500 recordings of Irish music. Old recordings were online. Irish singers played different instruments. Irish music is almost like Scottish music. One of instruments Irish singers play is flute. Archivists, librarians, and digital specialists worked on Irish music at Library of Congress.
