Mouldy launches new website on Irish songs

John Moulden

Ethnomusicologist, John Moulden, has launched a new website, John Moulden On Irish Songs, where he intends to post many of his published articles and papers accumulated over a lifetime of research and study.

Outlining the scope and purpose of the new site, John says: “I’ve been writing and talking about Irish songs for over fifty years. For some of those, friends have been suggesting I gather my published work together. I’m afraid these suggestions have now been acted upon. Under pandemical pressure, I’ve constructed a website.

“At present it has some introductory items built into a structure which, I hope, can be easily followed. Eventually, with a few items added each month, it is intended to hold house all my papers and a good number of presentations.”

‘Mouldy’ says that the material on the site is to be quarried, “according to each user’s interest and inclination, though it would be best to start at Home and follow suggestions.”

While he encourages engagement and debate, he points out that his full arguments may only become clear when all of the material has been posted.
