The Oxford Handbook of Irish Song 1100-1850 is a landmark publication on the history of singing in Ireland. The project includes essays from more than thirty distinguished and emerging scholars on a broad range of song styles and topics. In this seminar, the three co-editors discuss the collection as a whole and their own contributions. There will be live performance as part of the seminar.
