Special Event – Book Launch: Jigs to Jacobites

October 3, 2018 at 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm

Book Launch: Jigs to Jacobites
Authors: Orfhlaith Ni Bhriain and Michael McCabe Launched by Dr Sandra Joyce
The book Jigs to Jacobites written by Orfhlaith Ni Bhriain and Mick McCabe will be launched by Dr Sandra Joyce. Jigs to Jacobites is a new book that explores 4000 years of Irish history through the eyes of 40 traditional set dances. Set dances are a unique repertoire of Irish traditional music and dance where many of the tunes are set to historic dance choreographies. Each set dance has a history to it, be it the origin of the tune itself, who has danced it, who composed it, who published it, or the story behind its title. Each set dance title is beautifully illustrated, its story engagingly told and the music notation provided.
Foyer, Irish World Academy.
