    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.
