520 |a "Focus: Irish Traditional Music is an introduction to the instrumental and vocal traditions of Irish music in the context of the Irish diaspora and Celtic tradition. Intended for undergraduate and graduate area studies courses in music, ethnomusicology, anthropology, literature, and Irish Studies, the book brings together important ideas about Irish music from a rich variety of resources. Interdisciplinary elements of history, film, politics, poetry, dance, and images give a deeper context to the music. Part I, Irish Music in Place and Time, is an introduction to Ireland's musical history and its relationship to the sound and context of current performance practice. Part II, Music Traditions Abroad and at Home, locates Irish music within a larger "Celtic" music framework, including the North American Irish diaspora, and focuses on the instruments and instrumental forms. Part III, Focusing In, closely examines vocal music in Irish-Gaelic and English, and concludes with an examination of the globalization of Irish music. The online soundtrack presents both traditional and contemporary sounds of Irish music at home and abroad"--  |c Provided by publisher.
