    and the degree awarded in September of that year As with many postgraduate students at the Irish World Academy of Music and Dance I play Irish music My instrument is the uilleann or union pipes Although I played in Scullion many years ago I am sometimes regarded as a purist which in my view confines my interest to good music On a more serious note I prefer to hear solo players or small ensembles where the individual can still be heard and I still have not been completely won over to accompaniment other than the regulators My recording experience began as one of seven contributors to The Piper s Rock an album of young pipers a category which I have sadly left As a member of Scullion I recorded on the first album One or two guest appearances shall be allowed to gather dust although a track with James Kelly on his album The Ring Sessions was enjoyable But in December 1996 I released a solo recording entitled Seán Reid s Favourite which received expensive but favourable reviews on which I play a selection of favourite tunes on two very old sets of pipes one pitched in D and the other in B The title comes from a tune named by Willie Clancy after Seán Reid 1907 1978 who very generously gave me the B set of Colgan pipes which is my preferred set on loan for life I am in the process of recording a cd of the music of Paddy Conneely Apart from contributions to Fintan Vallely s Companion to Irish Traditional Music 1999 and to Brian Lalor s Encyclopaedia of Ireland 2003 I contributed a chapter for the ninth volume of Irish Musical Studies Murphy and Smaczny 2007 I am currently working on two projects the first of which is a book of Irish song translations made by piper and collector Séamus Ennis These translations were made by Séamus over a number of years with publication in mind for his friend the American singer and actress Robin Roberts Robin kindly entrusted the task to me The work involves searching for the original collected lyrics from which Seamus made his translations as well as recordings of the singers from whom he collected them and transcribing their melodies Some of this work has been carried out in collaboration with Dr Ríonach Uí Ógáin of the Department of Folklore at UCD I was the recipient of a Fubright Culture Ireland Award as Visiting Professor of Irish Studies at Boston College for the Spring semester in 2008 Apart from some lecturing and performing duties much of my time was spent editing and preparing manuscripts of the Hudson collection housed at the Boston Public Library and the library of the University of Notre Dame Indiana This collection is the focus of my second project Henry Hudson 1798 1889 was a member of a prominent Dublin professional family with strong nationalist sympathies Robert Emmet is said to have been a friend of the

  • Escribano, Maria | Irish World Academy of Music and Dance
    previous study undertaken in 1998 on the Significance of Euskara for its Speakers and my personal involvement with Euskal Etxea of Madrid as a singer in the Basque choir and a member of the mountaineering club Generally speaking my research subject is concerned with the relationship of music and identity dealing with issues of nationalism and ethnicity The articulation of these broader issues are explored in the particular case of a contemporary practically unexplored and rapidly evolving social phenomenon represented by the musical tradition and percussion instrument Txalaparta in Euskal Herria the Basque Country Txalaparta of supposed prehistoric origins is going through a remarkable revival process since the 1960 s after its prohibition by Franco s regime This is a process in which the conception of the instrument and music making keeps evolving into different ways of understanding increasing in musical texture and complexity However it is still evoking the past in a very powerful combination with the present that intends to perpetuate the instrument and what it means into a new future Txalaparta defines more than a sound tradition an instrument or a particular way of playing interlocking technique It is a way or many of living and performing Basqueness amid the struggle in the Basque Country to achieve self determination My concern is how does Txalaparta articulate identity in a way that no other element or practice in Basque culture does This research is focused on the analysis of the underlying structures of Txalaparta and its symbiotic relationship to Basque identity as well as a relationship with Basque language This research is part of my wider interest for music and dance both as sites of resistance and spontaneous self healing processes in situations of oppression disenfranchisement and an interest for applied ethnomusicology whereby such processes are actively induced
