If you don’t wish to read through the notes below, you can go straight to playlist T, part 8 on YouTube here.
The eighth in a series of the ten most popular videos on a number of YouTube channels to which I subscribe and which I visit regularly to listen to some great music which the channelmeisters have put together, some of it not available elsewhere. The selections are presented in ascending order of popularity, showing the number of views at the day the playlist was created.
ITMA Videos (594 videos as of today). The YouTube channel of the Irish Traditional Music Archive. A fantastic organisation which deserves all the support it can muster.
ITMA’s YouTube channel can be found at https://www.youtube.com/user/ITMAVideos. It’s well worth exploring in some depth but hopefully this “top ten” will give you a flavour.
