    The Blue of the Night with Eamonn Lenihan

    This week, Carl and Eamonn feature songs by an early 18th century composer from Austria. Hear a selection of lieder, many written by a teen-age Franz Schubert, nightly from 10pm.

    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.
