Hi Folks,

We're back with a bumper three hour show today and our friend and listener Mark French shares his "six of the best" which in the first half includes Wolfstone, Shooglenifty, Martyn Bennett and Laura-Beth Salter. Other music comes from Blue Rose Code, The Fiddle Case, Lúnasa, Nik Davies, Jeremy Spencer, Hamish Napier, Niteworks, Jeremy Spencer, Assynt, , The Fiddle Case, Trail West and Iona Fyfe.

In the second half Mark's selections include Ross Ainslie & Ali Hutton along with Greg Russell & Ciaran Algar, to pick just six tracks is a thankless task but Mark provided us with some crackers today, thanks Mark. You'll also hear tracks from Alec Finn (RIP) & Frankie Gavin, Aidan Connolly, John Reed, Karine Polwart, Steven Polwart & Inge Thomson, Mike Vass, Scott Wood Band, Emma Langford, Dowally, Droichead, Fergal Scahill, Sean McCarthy & David Howley, Against the Grain, Ensemble Ériu, Saltfishforty and Adam Holmes and The Embers,

We hope you enjoy the tunes,

Cheers

Andy, Bob & Mia
