Featuring repertoire drawn from original sources collected by Canon James Goodman (1828-96) in the mid-nineteenth century in his native province of Munster.
The Goodman manuscripts, which since his death have been held in the Library of Trinity College Dublin are of great significance because they preserve much of the traditional music of the south of Ireland as it was sung and played in the years before traditional culture there was devastated by the Great Famine of the 1840s.
Comprising music that could easily have disappeared from the Irish repertory, the manuscripts provide unique insights into the evolution of Irish traditional music.
From these manuscripts, Mick, Emer and Aoife have chosen music ranging from unusual versions of tunes in the modern repertoire to those apparently unique to the collection.
In 2014 the trio received a TG4 Gradam Cheoil award for their collaborative work on exploring this varied and intriguing repertoire.
