The Winter Fireside Talks were a series of online presentations and discussions hosted by Building Communities Resource Centre (BCRC) in partnership with Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council Museum Services in January and February 2021.
Talk 4 – The Sam Henry Collection – presented an overview of the fantastic archive of songs, stories, photographs and so much more collected by Sam Henry (1878-1952). It explored just some of the people from around the Causeway Coast and Glens that Sam has captured within his collection.
A selection of some of the songs used in the talk can be found below. These were recorded by Junior Johnson as part of the Playful Museums project, organised by the Northern Ireland Museums Council and funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund.
More information about Sam Henry and his collection is available across the NI Community Archive:
