    Songs and Stories

    Music and storytelling are a part of the Irish culture.

    Traditional music involves instruments and singers, evolved at a time when there were no radios or television sets. People depended on traveling bards, or wondering singers who composed songs, for news of what was going on elsewhere on their island home.

    This tradition is still important to the Irish today.

    Anyone can participate in the music and singing. Stories can be set to music or told straight. Legends and contemporary stories are equally popular. The most important part is the skill and wit of the storyteller.
