    The Blue of the Night with Eamonn Lenihan

    Tony McManus, the leading guitarist in Celtic music, will not be typecast. His latest release Mysterious Boundaries includes Bach, Couperin, Satie et al.

    Tom Jobim Tribute: January 26th - February 1st

    The cellist/arranger Jacques Morelenbaum and his singer/wife, Paula, were a big part of the life of Antonio Carlos Jobim (pictured), shaping the music of his last recordings. They paid a fitting tribute to “Tom” by recording an album in his Rio de Janeiro home studio - suitably titled "Casa".  We mark Tom Jobim’s birthday this week by shining the spotlight on this moving tribute with Ryucihi Sakamoto on piano and Jobim’s son Paulo on guitar.

    Bilingua: February 2nd - 8th

    Last November, Gael Linn released "Bilingua" - a previously unreleased recording by the late Eithne Ní Uallacháin who tragically passed away in 1999. As a member of the trio Lá Lugh, Eithne forged new interpretations of Irish traditional singing. But with "Bilingua" she composed new material of her own - yet still deeply rooted in the tradition. It's under the Blue spotlight all this week.
