This chapter presents an autobiographical account of a regular session in one public house, which echoes the stories of other traditional Irish musicians throughout the country. The waves of Irish economic activity have always shaped the landscape of the traditional arts, and the links across the Atlantic are hardly new. The representation of Ireland and Irish culture on the 2009 Global Irish Economic Forum discussion is an integral part of the politics and economics of the nation, exemplifying the prominent role of the arts. Irish traditional music is integrally connected to Irish identity but the identity represented by Irish traditional music has changed greatly, as have the spaces for its performance and consumption. While Irish traditional music has developed in the homesteads of rural Ireland, entering public spaces in the twentieth century, it has become a globally and commercially successful genre.
