Adopt a Cylinder

Francis O'Neill CylindersIn August of 2010, the Ward Irish Music Archives (WIMA) released an exhibit website about the Dunn Family Collection, including the Francis O'Neill cylinders.

We gratefully thank the generous sponsors who helped make the website possible through their donations. However, we still need your help! There are currently a few cylinders available for adoption. By adopting a cylinder you'll be helping people from around the globe access these recordings of the great Irish traditional musicians at the turn of the twentieth century.

For your sponsorship you'll receive:

  • Copy of the CD of these recordings which was released in summer 2010.
  • Your name will be included on website
  • next to cylinder that you sponsored.
  • Replica of cylinder container.
  • Knowledge that you helped WIMA to disseminate these important recordings to all of those interested in Irish music.
