In addition to the hours and hours of great Irish traditional music recordings in the Philadelphia Ceili Group collection, it has recently become apparent that the collection also includes some incredibly compelling audio documents of cultural lecture events from years past by top scholars in Irish Studies. Check out these recordings from 1979 events sponsored by the Ceili Group:
“The Irish in Philadelphia”, a lecture by Dr. Dennis J. Clark.
“Passing the Time in Ballymenone”, a lecture by Dr. Henry Glassie.
“Irish Literary Tradition”, a lecture by Dr. Thomas Kinsella.
“Celtic Epic Poems, Heroic Cycles”, a lecture by Dr. Ann T. Matonis.
More to come as digitization progresses!
