New Acquisitions at the Ward Irish Music Archives - June 2017

By Jeff Ksiazek
Published June 1, 2017

We've been tackling a couple projects around the Archives the past month or so, one of which was cataloging CDs donated by artists at last year's Milwaukee Irish Fest. The performers are generous and offer a copy of their latest releases while they're in town. This latest batch is an eclectic mix of Irish traditional music; traditional music from the Isle of Man, Newfoundland, and Wales; singer-songwriter material; and traditional folk songs and ballads.

The recordings are available for your listening pleasure here at the Archives, so feel free to let us know if you'd like to stop in and listen.

Here are a few highlights!
