Musical Instruments of Ireland

The guitar and bouzouki only came into the world of traditional Irish music at the end of 1960. The bodhran, once known in Ireland as a tambourine, is first mentioned in the 17th century, although it is probably just an adaptation of the ancient Celtic war drum. The tenor banjo 4 strings, first used by Irish musicians in the U.S. in the 1920's, is fully accepted. Ceilidh bands of the 1940s often include a battery and stand-up bass and saxophones. Neither the battery or the sax are accepted by purists, but the banjo is. Traditional fiddle became extinct in the 18th century and was revived by the McPeake family of Belfast, Derek Bell, Mary O'Hara and others in the mid-20th century. Although often found, which plays a marginal role in traditional Irish music.
Instruments such as accordion and concertina made its appearance in traditional Irish music in the late 19. There is little evidence of the concert flute having played a lot in traditional music. Musicians prefer traditional style wooden simple instrument for the Boehm-system of the modern orchestra. The whistle of mass production is acceptable. A good example is making traditional Irish music in 2006 was much more in common with that of 1906 than the year 1906 had in common with the music of the years 1806.
There is a three-way discussion on the instruments are acceptable. Purists generally in favor of the line-up that can be heard on albums by The Chieftains, The Clancy Brothers, The Dubliners and The Bothy Band. Modernists accept the drummer of The Pogues and The Corrs, and electric guitars Horslips. Classical composer Mícheál Ó influences such as David Downes Súilleabháin and accept the piano.


The accordion is a bellows-driven free reed family of instruments chords and melody notes, developed in the early part of the 19. The first accordion was a row of ten buttons each controlling a valve that controls the flow of air to a pair of metal reeds inside the instrument. These rods were with teeth of a diatonic scale, using a scheme similar to the harmonica. With each button two different notes can be obtained, by a "pulling" bellows another by 'push' the bellows. Movement within and outside the bellows changes and add notes fast enough to dance music.

The accordion family consists of a variety of instruments specifically known as a box of buttons, diatonic accordion, piano accordion and Melodeon. Each instrument has a different sound and a variety of features, each played for different types and styles of music. Basically, for each instrument, the right hand plays the treble notes on the keyboard or piano keyboard button and switch on the grid changes. The left hand plays the bass notes and chords, as well as switches and operates the button changes the air (the valve is actuated allowing the bellows to open and close without sound).

The chromatic button accordion

The Melodeon, also known as a diatonic accordion, was developed from the harmonica in the 19th century. It has a single row of ten buttons on the keyboard of his right hand and two accompanying buttons on the left hand. So the decoration could accompany the fiddle and the pipes and to be able to play in the extra keys, a second row of buttons was added, also diatonic. These additional keys were a semi-tone higher or lower from the original record. The instruments were made in key combinations of C / C #, C # / D, D / D and D # / C #. By adding the second row of keys, made the fully chromatic melodeon, providing the missing sharps and flats, preserving push-pull technique and tone of the diatomic accordion.

In late 1800 the single row melodeon was introduced in Ireland. His rhythmic qualities made a good instrument for playing dance music. It was cheap and easy to learn. It became a popular tool for women to play.

Irish artists who play instruments of the accordion family included Joe Cooley, Jackie Daly, Mairtin O'Connor, Benny McCarthy of Danu, Dermot Byrne of Altan, Seamus Begley, Sharon Shannon and Johnny Connolly.

Uilleann TUBES 

The Uilleann pipes (pronounced ill-United Nations) have existed in some form already in the fifth century. Since the 18th century have replaced the harp as a national instrument. A full set of Uilleann pipes consists of a bag, bellows, pointer, 3 aircraft and regulators 3. A set of practices including drones or regulators.

When playing the Uilleann (Irish old elbow), the musician is sitting with a bellows attached to his elbow. This allows you to pump air into the bag, which flows through the singers. There are finger holes on the front pointer and a thumbhole on the back. The melody is played through the pointer. The drones provide accompaniment on bass, baritone or tenor with the singer and regulators to provide a string accompaniment. The sound of the pipes is sweet and mild, but can be wild and exciting, depending on the musician.

In earlier times and the number of pipers were blind. Music was one of the few professions that a blind person could find a job. Many of them made their own pipes. Depending on the time of history, many pipers played for autocracy and became known as "gentlemen pipers. The average person made their own wooden pipes and made available for family and neighbors. Towards the end of 19 th century living conditions became very desperate in Ireland. With people struggling to survive the music was not a priority. Therefore, many pipers became homeless and went by the wayside. During the revival of Irish music in the 1960's there were only a few Uilleann pipers in the scene, the legendary Willie Clancy, Leo Rowsome and Seamus Ennis.

It uses a single reed (Welsh: "cal" or "Calaf"), cut elderberry (Sambucus nigra) or reed (Arundo fragmites), like the drone of a bagpipe, the ancestor of the modern clarinet reed. The only camera body has a larger diameter pipe naturally in parallel, in which small holes drilled six fingers and a thumb hole to a compass of an octave diatonic. The body of the instrument is traditionally carved from a single piece of wood or bone. Examples playable existing historical at the Museum of Welsh Life have bodies in the form of court and the elderly. Another instrument unplayable at the Museum, possibly of a later date, is made of bone from the leg of a hoofed unspecified. Contemporary instruments are turned and bored on a variety of fruitwoods, or exotic woods, or converted from, or molded in plastic. The rod is protected by a reed-cap or stock cow horns. The bell is shaped like a cow horn section, which serves to amplify the sound. The pibgorn may be attached to a bag, with the additional possibility of an unmanned aircraft, or play directly with the mouth through the reed-cap.

The palendag, also called Pulalu (Manabe and Mansaka) Palandag (Bagobo) polish (Bukidnon) and Lumundeg (Banuwaen) is a type of Philippine bamboo flute, the largest used by the Maguindanaon, a smaller type of this instrument is called the Hulakteb (Bukidnon). A flute from the mouth of the valley, is considered the hardest of the three bamboo flutes (the others are tumpong and suling) to use due to the way a shape of the lips against the tip to make a sound.

The ocarina is a flute as the ancient wind instrument. Variations exist, but a typical ocarina is a closed space with eleven fifty-six finger holes and a mouthpiece protruding from the body. Often it is ceramic, but other materials can be used, such as plastic, wood, glass, clay and metal.
The ocarina is one of a very ancient family of instruments, believed to date back over 12,000 years. Ocarina-type instruments have been of particular importance in Chinese and Mesoamerican cultures. For the Chinese, the team played an important role in its long history of song and dance. The ocarina has similar features to the Xun (埙), another important tool in China (but differs in that it uses an inner Ocarina while Xun is blown through the outer edge.) In Japan, traditionally known as ocarina the tsuchibue (kanji: 土 笛, literally, "the flute of clay"). Different expeditions to Mesoamerica, including the one conducted by Cortés, resulted in the introduction of the ocarina to the courts of Europe. Both the Mayans and Aztecs had produced versions of the ocarina, but it was the Aztecs who brought the song and dance of Europe that accompanied the ocarina. The ocarina became popular in European communities as a toy instrument.
Its earliest use in Europe dates back to the 19 in Budrio, a town near Bologna, Italy, where Giuseppe Donati transformed the ocarina from a toy, which only played a few notes in a more comprehensive instrument (known as the first " classic "ocarinas). The ocarina word in the dialect of Bologna means "little goose." The earliest form known in Europe as gemshorn, which was made from animal horns of the gemsbok.
The ocarina was presented at the Nintendo The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, which draws a sharp increase in interest and a dramatic increase in sales.
