The prints in the MAK are indeed from the same series, but published slightly later and therefore signed with 'Ippōsai Kunimori ga'.
As mentioned, the last character in the series title, 'gin' (吟: recite; chant) was for some reason replaced by the character 'ch˘' (調: tune; melody). 'Oiwai' means 'festival' or 'ceremony'. The compound 'Yoshiz˘' is unclear to me, could be a location.
The Japanese reading of both titles in romaji is given by Andreas Marks in 'Publishers of Japanese Woodblock Prints: A compendium'. The translation given by the MAK is probably not accurate.
