Well, RTÉ's fourth Big Music Week is well and truly underway, with the Big Music Week Train cutting a dash in every station it pulls into. Mooney has jumped on board the train, and on Monday, Brenda hosted a most unusual House Party!
Just a quick reminder, the house parties are when a well known artist or band perform in a listener front room, kitchen, bathroom... whatever.
We’ve had some of Ireland’s greatest entertainers, Brian Kennedy, Tommy Fleming, The Furey Brothers, Majella and Daniel O'Donnell, Crystal Swing, Jack L and the list goes on, all singing their hearts out in many a kitchen, all across the country.
Last Monday, we are took our House Party and put it on the Big Music Week Train along with Ireland’s hottest country music star.
A carriage load of Mooney listeners travelled from Carlow to Waterford and back again all in the delightful company of Derek Ryan, who sang for us all along the way.
Brenda and her fellow passengers all gathered at 2.15pm on the platform in Carlow train station and waited for the Big Music Week Train.
People travelled from all over the country, Kilkenny, Roscommon, Galway, Laois, Dublin and of course Carlow to be part of this most unique house party, and today, we enjoy just a flavour of the fun on board, beginning with some of the passengers as they waited on the platform for the Big Music Week Train!
