Grace Kelly Irish-American Song-sheet catalogue launch 2023
15 March · 4:00 PM6:00 PM
This archive of 1,099 printed Irish-American song-lyrics and music sheets from the years c. 1840-1940 was catalogued by Fintan Vallely in 1919 and printed off as a limited-run hard copy book which was formally launched on March 15th, 2023.
Originally planned for 2020, the launch was to take the form of a concert by Fintan with Maighread and Tríona Ní Dhomhnaill singing and playing a selection of sixteen literary and popular songs and song-airs chosen from the collection. Covid intervened, and the 2023 launch was done as a concert of music by Fintan along with harp players Anaïd Conquet, Mathilde Grinda, Margaux Horgne and Justine Leblanc performing with their teacher Noëlle Vera, Académie Rainier III.
