Mornings With Dave Fanning

    Monday - Friday, 9 - 10am

    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

    Jimmy MacCarthy returns by popular demand

    We had singer songwriter Jimmy MacCarthy on our show in September, as he was about to head off on a nationwide tour. Because of the extraordinary response to his appearance, many of you requested other songs of Jimmy's that we simply had not time for. Jimmy is back in studio with us this morning as his tour is coming to an end.  Also joining us on the line are Mary Black, Brian Kennedy & Mary Coughlan.  Jimmy was accompanied on piano by Rob Burke.

    All tour dates booked out but there are still some available tickets for Vicar Street, tomorrow night.

    If you require a CD copy of this programme please e-mail tapes@rte.ie. Transfer fees and terms and conditions apply.
