    Mornings with Dave Fanning Search for Ireland’s Most Musical Family

    Brothers, sisters, cousins, in-laws, step fathers, grannies – the show is looking for families that play together to enter the competition. Non family members are permitted – as long as family is at the heart of it – as with The Clancy Brothers and Tommy Makem and The Fureys and Davey Arthur.

    Send us a 4’00 maximum clip performing the song or music of your choice – it does not need to be an original piece of music.

    Upload it to Youtube and email us the link to davefanning@rte.ie.

    You also need to send us a 100 word supporting paragraph telling us your story and why you should be chosen.

    The closing date for entries is 5pm on Wednesday  26th August.

    Our final will be held the first week in September and finalists need to be available then to perform before our judges.

    The judges’ decision is final.

    The prize courtesy of Waltons music is a Kurzweil CUP-2 Upright Digital Piano. For more information visit  www.waltons.ie

    Celebrating Darkness

    As winter looms & the clocks have gone back, this morning on the John Murray Show we are going to celebrate the dark in the company of writer & playwright Michael Harding & comedienne Anne Gildea. But darkness need not automatically meangloominess, so we celebrate the darkness, hibernation, retreat & reflection.

    Music at the NCH

    We have music from Zoe Conway & Nikola Parov, as part of the TRI60 Project, traditional musicians from different parts of Europe collaborating together & will be performing in the National Concert Hall. For further information go to www.nch.ie

    Also joining John on the line from Iceland is Helga Arnadootir who describes what it is like being with the limited hours of light in Rekjavik & how Icelanders love swimming in the hot springs in winter!
