    The Rolling Wave

    Traditional and folk music in Ireland, presented by Peter Browne

    We mark the 50th anniversary of the death of the great Kerry Sliabh Luachra fiddle-player Pádraig O’Keeffe with examples of his music and excerpts from a radio documentary series on his life. Also accordion music from Alan Kelly and two songs from Muireann Nic Amhlaiomh. Also a new RW competition for copies of the new RTÉ DVD Come West Along the Road Volume 4.
