    Irish Music 23 12 2010 A friend linked to this video on Facebook It s by the guys from Prehistoric Music Ireland and it reminded me of some old footage I recorded at WAC 6 a couple of years ago which you can see above It s a very short taster video showing a little bit of a demonstration of reconstructed early Irish musical Instruments including trumpets and horns I was very impressed by the talk and by the noises that came out of the instruments Particularly the giant Celtic Loughnashade trumpet I would highly recommend having a look at the full video that inspired this post Its embedded after the break or you can go straight to YouTube Comments Comments are closed What A site about Irish archaeology conferences links opinions news information and the internet Seandalaiocht on Google Click here for events calendar Categories All Apps Archaeometallurgy Audio Bullauns Conference Design Events Experimental Fieldwork Grants Grey Literature Guest Post Internet Jobs Lithics Me News Other Photography Public Publication Sea Stallion Sites Smelt 2010 Tat Television Video Archives September 2013 April 2013 November 2012 July 2012 May 2012 March 2011 February 2011 January 2011 December 2010 November 2010 October
