Sheet music for Irish Folk

Irish Folk refers to the traditional folk music and dance forms of Ireland. This form of music has deep roots in the history and culture of Ireland and is closely linked to the country’s identity. Irish folk encompasses a wide range of songs, dances and instrumental pieces that have been passed down from generation to generation.

Irish folk is characterized by lively dance tunes, known as jigs, reels, hornpipes and polkas, as well as emotional ballads and songs that often tell stories, historical events, the Irish landscape and everyday life. Instruments typically used in Irish folk music are the fiddle (fiddle), tin whistle (a small metal flute), the uilleann pipes (a special Irish bagpipe), the accordion, the bodhrán (an Irish frame drum) as well as guitars and harps.

Irish folk has experienced a renaissance in the 20th century and is now popular worldwide, not only in Ireland and the Irish diaspora. Many Irish folk music groups and artists have gained international recognition and contribute to keeping traditional music alive and developing it further. Irish folk also plays a central role in Irish pub culture, where live music is an essential part of social life.

Irish folk is not just a form of entertainment, but also an important expression of Irish cultural identity and history, celebrated and nurtured through festivals, dance events and music sessions.
