2:00pm - The Ennis Trail - A Multimedia Presentation by Michael Lydon
On January 13th, 1951, the famous American folklorist, or ‘song-hunter’, Alan Lomax arrived in Ireland to collect material for an album that would become the first LP of Irish traditional music, ‘The World Library of Folk and Primitive Music: Volume II Ireland’. Under advice from George Moore of the BBC, Lomax recruited the great Séamus Ennis, at that point already an established folklorist, to act as his guide. The journey they took visiting villages across Ireland, recording singers and musicians, would later be referred to as ‘The Ennis Trail’, a journey that when examined today, offers a fascinating insight into Irish traditional music.
