Island Lecture Series: Music-making and the experience of community life on an Irish island with Rory McCabe
The Island Lecture Series January lecture will feature Rory McCabe discussing music-making and the experience of community life on Clare Island (Ireland), followed by a conversation with Dr. Laurie Brinklow (IIS, UPEI) and questions from the audience.

This lecture presents an ethnographic account of music and social life on Clare Island (pop. 159), a small community off the west coast of Ireland. The details of music-making on Clare Island in the twenty-first century suggest that, against a changing social, economic, and technological environment, the universal themes of social bonding persist as core values in the island experience. Through this presentation, Rory McCabe will describe how music-making is a fundamental process in island community life and an important measure of island health or vitality.

This virtual event is free and everyone is welcome to attend. The event will be hosted on Zoom, and advance registration is required – please register below to reserve your spot.
