Riches of Clare (2009)

320 kbps

Riches of Clare (Clare Arts Office - 2009)

Recordings from the 2009 Riches of Clare free lunchtime concerts, put together for a free CD which was handed out at the Riches of Clare concerts, and in libraries throughout County Clare earlier this year. It features brilliant playing, predominantly from Clare musicians, as well as a number of musicians from further afield. Hopefully recordings from the equally brilliant 2010 series will be available next year.

False Alarm...

Every day since I received my first takedown notice, I sent an email to IFPI requesting that they specify exactly which link generated the Copyright Complaint Notice so I didn't re-post it in ignorance and receive yet another blast of fiery denunciation from the upright folks at Blogger (the takedown notice is actually very polite). I received the following response:

'Dear Sir/Madam

Thank you for your emails. We have now investigated the matter internally and it appears that, despite our earlier good faith belief, the video does not infringe our members rights. We have informed Google accordingly.

Apologies for any inconvenience.

Yours Faithfully

IFPI Notices'

Apology accepted gratefully. Thank you, nice IFPI people. It really is appreciated...


(I did wonder why, of all the material I've posted, a link to a Youtube video should incur the wrath of those most legitimate opponents of the dubious right to copy...)
