    The Rolling Wave

    There has been a raft of new releases of traditional music and song; tonight we hear a selection of the brightest and best of them.

    About The Show

    Named after a famous traditional Irish tune, The Rolling Wave is a sharp ear and a close eye on the world of traditional and folk music in Ireland.
