Jimmy McBride comes from Gaoth Dobhair in north-west Donegal but has spent his working life and still lives in Buncrana. A teacher by profession, he has spent many years collecting and recording songs from Inishowen and surrounding areas. It is this collection of recordings upon which the Inishowen Song Project is largely based.  A fine singer himself, Jimmy's repertoire includes songs learned locally and many songs in Irish from his native west Donegal area. We are indebted to Jimmy for his work collecting and cataloguing and ultimately donating the material to the Irish Traditional Music Archive. The Song Project will play a very important role in perpetuating the Inishowen song tradition and is a testament to the work of Jimmy McBride
