32 recordings of Irish Traditional music in America circa 1904. This CD features performances from uilleann piper Patrick Touhey, as well as Chicago musicians James Early, Bernard Delaney, John McFadden, and Edward Cronin.
Originally recorded on wax cylinders, the Ward Irish Music Archives digitized these recordings for historical preservation.
The Francis O'Neill Cylinders are a part of the Ward Irish Music Archives' Dunn Family Collection. In addition to the cylinders, the collection features manuscripts, books, sheet music, artifacts and ephemera collected by Michael J. Dunn.
