ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
This CD-booklet is the result of a research project initiated in 2010 by the Douglas Community Centre in Douglastown, Gaspé to document the cultural life of the community from the early 20th century through the 1980s. Douglastown has been long celebrated for the vitality of its musical life, especially its annual St. Patrick’s Day concerts. During the project, close to 60 community members were interviewed and many home recordings and photographs were gathered; the CD and accompanying booklet are based on these collected materials.

Laura Risk and Glenn Patterson, both ethnomusicologists and regular participants at the Douglastown Irish Week, took over, conducting additional research and interviews and collecting additional recordings. By early 2014, they had listened through and catalogued over 70 hours of music and selected the most representative material for the CD. The music and voices on this 73-minute CD are enriched by a 56 page bilingual booklet which contains, among other documentation, short biographies of each performer and descriptions of the music on each track. The music is mostly traditional dance tunes played on fiddles, guitar, harmonica, accordion, and pump organ; several Irish, popular, and country songs (Irish, popular, and country); and spoken anecdotes in English.
