The Blue of the Night with Carl Corcoran

The Blue of the Night connects different musical landscapes - a musical journey through centuries, genres and soundscapes.

Something to smile about....

"There is An Island" is the latest Ergodos Musicians' project featuring songs by composers Garret Sholdice and Benedict Schlepper-Connolly and the pure voice of Michele O'Rourke. They joined Carl for a Blue Room Session in advance of their contribution to the Santa Rita Concert Series at the Little Museum of Dublin.
