Adam Kaul will be giving a public lecture on campus Thursday, April 8, 2010 at 7:30 PM in Olin Auditorium entitled "Between the Jigs and the Reels: Traditional Music and Tourism in the West of Ireland".  A synopsis follows:

Radical social and economic changes have occurred during the last century in Ireland. These changes impact all aspects of local life but none more so than traditional Irish music, an increasingly important marker of Irish identity. Prior to the recent collapse of the Irish economy, the biggest force of change was the explosion of tourism in the 1990s and 2000s. Adam Kaul spent a year living in a small village on the west coast of Ireland in order to study exactly how tourism has changed social life there, and in particular, public performances of traditional music. In this lecture, he will discuss his ethnographic fieldwork, the impacts of tourism on Irish music and culture, and the crisis of the post-"Celtic tiger" era.
