Na Píobairí Uilleann launches a new on-line resource

Na Píobairí Uilleann launched a new extensive on-line resource entitled SOURCE this month.  
SOURCE provides access to an underlying digital media database comprising thousands of video clips of the best of Irish traditional music built up from our monthly recital series over the last five years. SOURCE also provides a new platform for our instructional tutor video series covering beginner, intermediate and advanced tunes. Other material includes selections from their audio and photo archive including thousands of high quality photographs of classic instruments.
Also available are the Irish Music Collections On-line (IMCO) Galleries consisting of over 1,600 pieces of music from 24 significant historical music collections dating from as early as 1724. These tune collections have been transcribed by Na Píobairí Uilleann from the originals and are available to review or listen to using the freeware Sibelius Scorch player. In deploying the site they also took the opportunity to merge some of their existing web based resources such as their on-line library into the SOURCE.
