Music for the D Row
Name of Award
Faculty Research & Scholarly Activities Grant
Amy Shaw, Associate Professor of Library, received a $2,000 Faculty Research & Scholarly Activities Grant to document an older style of Irish traditional dance music as performed by players of the C#/D button accordion or one-row melodeon. She will interview, and collect field recordings from, several musicians living in Ireland or the U.S. She will also study early recordings made on wax cylinder and 78-rpm records. The goal is to produce a book.
