Book Review



A Guide to a Global, Hybrid Music
Gear?id ? hAllmhur?in's reissued book 'A Short History of Irish Traditional Music' stands the test of time, writes Aileen Dillane, and contains new material on female musicians as well as the expanding presence of Irish music studies.



Live Review: Paul Brady



The Song Harvest
Paul Brady's songs have soundtracked Ireland since the 1970s, crossing many styles, but what are the characteristics that bind his songwriting together? Deirdre Clare, in the latest review from our Journal of Music/Clare County Council Music Writer Mentoring Scheme, listens to a song-rich performance at Gl?r.





Live Review: Brian Wilson



Galway Only Knows
'Pet Sounds' is a complete experience rather than an album of separate works, writes Dylan Murphy, in the latest review from our Journal of Music/Galway City Council Music Writer Mentoring Scheme, and hearing the 60s masterpiece live was a reminder of its meticulous construction - but Brian Wilson's presence on stage raised other questions.
