    The Rolling Wave

    Some nostalgia this evening on the Rolling Wave: The Leitrim Céilí Band, Mary Ann Carolan, Brendan Behan, Patrick Kavanagh, Luke Kelly and more.

    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

    A new competition to speed us through the winter on The Rolling Wave: We have 2 copies of the new CD by Tony Mac Mahon and Steve Cooney – “Live in Spiddal – Scaoil Amach an Pocaide” given to us by Raelach Records.

    The question: From what county in Ireland does Tony Mac Mahon come?
