Ms Mary Mitchell Ingoldsby BMus, MA., HDip in Ed
My special areas of interest lie in both the history of, and performance on both the uilleann pipes and tin whistle; fieldwork
in Irish traditional music; north Kerry fiddle styles; and computer indexing and cataloguing field recordings. I have been
invited by various bodies and different institutions to give talks on these and related subjects.
Since 2002, I organise courses in Irish traditional music for students and professors from visiting universities, principally Appalachian State University, Boone, North Carolina, U.S.A. I have been involved with the U.C.C. International Summer School in Irish studies and Celtic Studies for many years and have given classes and lectures at U.C.C.'s Early Start programme in Music.
I am very interested in the problems associated with archiving, cataloguing and indexing Irish traditional music and have been a board member of the Irish Traditional Music Archive, Merrion Square, Dublin, and I continue to work in the Department's Traditional Music Archive.
I am interested in the singing tradition of the Muskerry area of County Cork and I was a committee member of the Sean Ó Riada International Conference entitled `The County Bounds' which dealt with that subject and which was organised in collaboration with staff from Cork Institute of Technology.
