The Traditional Music (Taught) programme at Dundalk Institute of Technology combines academic research, performance practice and the latest technological methods and explores the musical, social and historical dimensions of the folk music traditions of many areas of Europe including Ireland, Scotland, Brittany and Scandinavia.
Students engage with the discipline of ethnomusicology undertaking courses in traditional music studies, collection and archiving, popular music theory, transmission, and technology. The dissertation/research project provides opportunities for students to develop an in-depth specialized study, which can be academic or performance based.
