Medieval Irish Music

Professor Fergus Kelly will present a lecture of the School of Celtic Studies on Friday 15th Nov. which gives an overview of music in Ireland during the exciting years from the 4th century until the coming of the Normans. Considering the extraordinary vitality of the music tradition in Ireland it will be interesting to hear about its beginnings.

The lecture is free and no booking is required. The lecture is at 8pm in the Thomas Davis Theatre (lecture hall) but we will meetup from 7pm in Starbucks.

    The lecture hall was full and there were about twenty people standing so it was a very popular talk. Prof. Kelly moved at a brisk pace so it was certainly interesting.
    That said the knowledge of what we know of music, musicians and instruments of the early Irish period is limited with much being inferred from pictures and Irish words of the period.
    Still all in all a pleasant evening.

    As this is an open public lecture, I'm hoping that the style will be informal rather than academic.
