Shepherd, bagpiper, story teller, singer Pál István (1919–2015) would have been 100 years old this year. Resident of Hungary’s Nógrád County all his life, Pál István was a fantastic informant, a treasury of ethnographic and cultural information. Printed here are excerpts of interviews with Pál István which were included in ethnomusicologist Agócs Gergely’s doctoral dissertation entitled [“Traditional Instrumental Music Culture of Hungarians in Slovakia”] (2010).
