Here I Am Amongst You is an account of the folklore and repertoire of one of the most influential singers and traditional fiddlers in Ireland - Joe Holmes (1906-78) of County Antrim. It journeys into the heart of a diverse traditional life in Ulster, giving a detailed and comprehensive account of the world of a singer musician in the twentieth century: one which knew few religious or community boundaries - with house dances and song sessions, mumming customs at Christmas, shinny playing and haymaking in summer, whilst journeying to other parts of Ireland to share music with great musicians such as Sarah and Rita Keane of Galway, John Doherty of Donegal and Denis Murphy of Slieve Luachra in Kerry. The book publishes some eighty songs of love, politics, early classic ballads, songs of emigration and of local interest, together with transcriptions of over fifty dance tunes ranging from mazurkas, polkas, schottisches, quadrilles, lancers, and hornpipes to jigs and reels, reflecting the varied influences and traditions of Ireland and Scotland.

Masters of Irish Music is a lively and engaging collection of thirty profiles to dip into and out of, consult as a reference, or indeed read cover to cover, compiled by musical historian Liam Gaul. From Turlough O'Carolan to Luke Kelly, Gaul takes us on a journey through Irish musical history, taking in some of the lesser-known, as well as the better-known names in Irish music. All of the artists profiled have passed on, leaving new generations to continue the work started by these masters - and this collection may serve to inspire and educate aspiring musicians, composers, and academics.
