The New Demesne

Field Recordings Made by Alan Lomax in Ireland, 1951


I met Seán Potts at The Irish Traditional Music Archive in Merrion Square, Dublin at 7am on 13th January,2021 (by appointment) to collect books and the Lomax package has just arrived late the previous day so I made west with two gems.

  A 2 cd (with booklet) repository of traditional Irish tunes,songs and stories recorded by Alan Lomax and Robin Roberts with help from Seamus Ennis in 1951.
