This Week on Blue....

This week Carl introduces a captivating CD featuring two Vietnamese guitarists. Nguyên Lê and Ngô H?ng Quang had very different upbringings and musical educations but this album brings them together exploring both the roots and the future of Vietnamese music. For his new album Nguyên Lê, French guitarist with Vietnamese roots and the first exclusive ACT artist ever meets the young Vietnamese singer and multi-instrumentalist Ngô Hóng Quang, accompanied by musical friends from all around the world. Focus of the album is the music of Vietnam, between tradition and modernity.

The Blue of the Night with Carl Corcoran

Aaron Thibeaux Walker aka T-Bone was one of the most influential musicians to rise up from the fertile Texas blues scene; he's our Blue Tunes feature this week.

LOUIS REMEMBERED

It's been a sad year for the music world with the loss of many iconic figures. One of our own legends, jazz guitarist Louis Stewart left us earlier this year. Louis' musical legacy is recognised and lauded in the international jazz world. At home in Ireland, where he chose to base himself even at the peak of his international fame, he became a friend and mentor to many in a burgeoning jazz community. His loss is immense. In March 2014, Louis was the featured artist on The Blue of the Night with Carl Corcoran. This special programme features many of Louis' wonderful performances and his chat with Carl, recalling his early days and the highlights of his international career.
