72. 29th April, 2017

Hi Folks, fine tunes and songs from Louise Mulcahy, Rachel Newton, Laura Marling and Sierra Hull open the show today.

We mark May Day with tracks from Billy Bragg and Dick Gaughan, we have mighty music from Colm Gannon, Danielle Lewis and Camhanach. We take a trip to Orkney in the company of Saltfishforty and tracks from their new album, “Bere”.

The Jeremiahs give us a great version of Dave Turnbull’s song “The King of Rome”, telling the story of this majestic bird from my hometown, Derby and we take a cheeky trip to Skaville with Lord Tanamo and Carl Dawkins.

Great tunes and songs from James Duncan Mackenzie, Declan O'Rourke, Emma and The Professor, Adam Agee & Jon Sousa, Old Blind Dogs, Journey North, Ushers Island and Session A9.

More great tunes from Josie Nugent, Annie Grace, Fraser Fifield, Cormac Begley, Éamonn O'Riordan & Tony O'Connell, Ímar and Project West, great pipe sets from Dessie Kelliher, Brian O'Loughlin & Tom Delany, Cillian Vallely and Loïc Bléjean & Tad Sargent.

Three tracks from the Flowers of Edinburgh Concert album from 1998 including cMc with John Moran, Simon Thoumire and Jim Sutherland and a great fiddle set from Russell Hunter, Eilidh Shaw, Simon Bradley and the late great Angus Grant.

We finish with the great track “And Them” from Journey North’s forthcoming album “Dance Towards Tomorrow Smiling”. We hope you enjoy the music,

Cheers

Andy (&Bob)
