Willie Clancy Summer School 2001: Photos by Orla Henihan

About

The Irish Traditional Music Archive, since its foundation in 1987, has had a fruitful association with the Willie Clancy Summer School and its musicians, and this is reflected in the large number of sound recordings and video recordings made by ITMA staff for public access.

Photographs are also taken as part of the documentary record and a selection of photographs taken at the 2001 School by Galway musician Orla Henihan (then Melodies & Images Officer of ITMA, now Arts Access Officer of the Linenhall Arts Centre, Castlebar, Co Mayo) is reproduced here from the ITMA collections.

The photos cover a range of the School’s activities, formal and informal. There is a concentration on instrumental music, with a strong emphasis on teaching and learning.

With thanks to Orla Henihan & to the WCSS performers, teachers, students, & organisers.
