I recently watched Lomax in Éirinn on TG4 describing the 1951 trip by Alan Lomax to Ireland to record and preserve Irish Music. Having recorded in various communities in the US he want on to record a massive archive that is now stored in the US Library of Congress.
Such a simple idea and yet such an incredible archive of music that may have died with those that performed it. Well worth watching the TG4 documentary linked above.
