Laban Traditional Music Photo Collection now online

Peter Laban is a photographer and piper living in Miltown Malbay, County Clare. He has been photographing musicians in Clare since the late 1980s. Peter’s special areas of interest are pipers, concertina players and the Willie Clancy Summer School, which he has been documenting for many years. Many of the musicians photographed are well known, but many local musicians, not known outside their own areas, are also included. The Laban Traditional Music Photo Collection is an outstanding record of the people at the heart of the vibrant traditional music scene in Clare. The first batch of the collection can be viewed on Foto, Clare County Library's online image collection here:
