Today’s show opens with two tracks from Mairearad Green’s album “Summer Isles” and lovely stuff it is. Our album of the week is the outstanding “Fiddle & Guitar” which comes from Ross Couper & Tom Oakes  which features track after track of stunning playing, it’s been a long time coming but is more than worth the wait.

The show also includes great music from: At First Light, Topette!! Jack Talty, Mairearad Green & Anna Massie, Ensemble Ériu, Matthew Ward, Phillip Henry & Hannah, three tracks from the new album from Elephant Sessions ”All We Have Is Now”.

We have great piping from Mikie Smyth, tracks from the Ryan Young and Craig Irving EP and a brace of tracks from the debut album from the Victorian band Trioc, “A Fair Wind”.More great tunes and songs from Darren Lynch, Journey North, Barrule, Sinead Murphy, Horses Brawl, Bríd O'Gorman, Colm Gannon, Emma and The Professor, Conor O'Sullivan, We Banjo 3 and Mec Lir. Fraser Fifield and Mr McFall's Chamber close the show with Martin Bennett’s “Swallowtail” from the album “Birds & Beasts”, we hope you enjoy the music.
