    The Blue of the Night with Eamonn Lenihan

    June 8 - 14. Parisian Anne Queffélec - the daughter and sister of writers - is passionate about literature. That said, Anne has, from an early age, devoted her own efforts to music. She was awarded first prize at the 1968 international piano competition in Munich, and at Leeds the following year. “The piano is,” she believes, “an orchestra in miniature.” Her latest Mirare release, “Satie & Compagnie” focuses on French composers of the early 20th century.

    We’ll be airing selections from the CD all this week on BLUE. Expect to hear music by Ravel, Debussy, Hahn, Poulenc, Satie and others, nightly, from 10pm.

    The Unthanks: April 13th - 19th

    They have interpreted songs by Robert Wyatt and Antony & the Johnsons, a rousing brass band collaboration and captured the folk history of their native Northumbria.  Now The Unthanks, led by sisters Rachel and Becky, release a studio album that is folk tinged yet contemporary. A recent Dublin appearance was hailed as "magnificent". "Mount The Air" is our featured album. Hear it, along with their back catalogue – nightly at 10.

    Sinikka Langeland: April 20th - 26th

    Sinikka Langeland, a graduate of the University of Oslo, has studied piano, guitar and contemporary folksong. Since 1981, she's been especially interested in the kantele, or table harp. We'll hear original compositions from "The half-finished Heaven", her latest ECM release, all this week on BLUE.
