    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

    Music & chat with a band from Seattle

    It is hard to believe that it is now 20 years since one of America's most iconic rock stars, Kurt Cobain, was found dead in his Seattle home.  Kurt fronted Nirvana - arguably the most influential band of a generation, with their album Nevermind being one of the best selling records of all time.

    Nirvana's original drummer was Chad Channing, who now fronts a band called 'Before Cars' who are on a European tour this month. They join John here in studio for a chat & performance.

    {Before Cars are playing Sat July 5th Monroe's Galway, Sunday July 6th in the Sugar Club, Dublin}
