Padraig McGovern of the Cavan-Leitrim border area on uilleann pipes and Peter Carberry of Co Longford on accordion were recorded by ITMA staff in the Market Theatre, Armagh, at the William Kennedy Piping Festival of November 2014.

Brid Harper of Co Donegal on fiddle and Harry Bradley of Belfast on flute were recorded by ITMA staff at Scoil Gheimhridh Ghaoth Dobhair, Gaoth Dobhair, Co Donegal, in December 2014.

The duet recordings of Dublin harpers Anne-Marie O’Farrell and Cormac De Barra were kindly donated to the ITMA collections by the performers in 2014.
