    Eamonn talks to Laurence Hobgood

    Dave Brubeck described Grammy-winner Laurence Hobgood as "one of the most incredible pianists". Best-known for his 20 years as Kurt Elling's pianist/arranger, Laurence has also enjoyed a solo career. And he's just released a Christmas album. All of the above were mentioned when Laurence popped into our Limerick studios during his most recent visit to these shores.

    T-Bone Walker: April 7th - 13th

    Blues guitarist T-Bone Walker is one of the most influential musicians to rise up from the fertile Texas blues scene. The first man to go electric, his impact on blues guitar worldwide was huge. This week, Blue features T-Bone from his days with Capitol Records in the 40’s through to his Grammy Winner in 70’s and - especially - recordings made for Imperial Records during the 1950s.
