Rock and Popular Music in Ireland: Before and After U2

Noel McLaughlin, Martin McLoone

    Research output: Book/ReportBook

    Abstract

    A history and detailed analysis of popular music in Ireland from the 1960s to 2010. The book explores the ways in which popular music in Ireland responded to changing local, regional, national and global factors to build a body of work that is celebrated and revered worldwide. And yet despite this global success the music is also seen as being characteristically 'national' or 'Irish'. The book explores this dichotomy by looking at notions of 'authenticity' and 'hybridity' in the work of a range of Irish artists and bands, including U2, Van Morrison, Rory Gallagher, Horslips, Christy Moore, Phil Lynott, Bob Geldof, The Undertones, Sinead O'Connor and a host of less well-known artists and bands that have made a significant contribution to Irish popular music over the years.
