    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.

    Competition

    We have a new competition for the start of summer on The Rolling Wave. The prizes are copies of The New Road CD by Charlie Piggott and Gerry Harrington.

    The question is: Charlie Piggott was a member of a celebrated traditional group in the1970s - can you name it?
