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.
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!
