The Blue of the Night with Carl Corcoran

Nightly, 10pm - 1am

The Blue of the Night with Carl Corcoran Tuesday 10 June 2014

This week on Blue ...

Belfast blues guitarist Ronnie Greer's new CD, The Jazz Project, highlights another facet of his distinctive playing, and features some of Ireland's leading jazz musicians, including Richie Buckley, Dominic Mullan and Scott Flanigan. While the album celebrates the classic style of 50's and 60's Blue Note inspired recordings, there's also a very strong blues element throughout, aligned with some serious swinging grooves. Impressive guest vocals from Grainne Duffy and Ken Haddock. Hear it on Blue all this week.

The Blue of the Night with Carl Corcoran

German experimental pianist Hauschka is under the Blue spotlight - prepared piano, exciting soundscapes, solo works plus his recent duet outing with violinist Hilary Hahn.

On Wednesday...

Carl will be joined by the Barnsley Nightingale, Kate Rusby for a Blue Room Session. Accompanied by Damien O'Kane, she will sing a few songs from her latest album 'Life in a Paper Boat' and chat with Carl about her musical life.
