    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.

    About The Show

    Named after a famous traditional Irish tune, The Rolling Wave is a sharp ear and a close eye on the world of traditional and folk music in Ireland.

    Sunday, 10.00pm on RTÉ Radio 1


    Congratulations to Declan Conneely, Moycullen and Geraldine Greene, Ennis - winners of copies of Charlie Piggott and Gerry Harrington’s  CD “The New Road”.

    The answer is: Dé Dannan.

    Thanks for all the entries and the next quiz is for copies of the new CD “Our Dear Dark Mountain with the Sky over it" which we discussed with Seán McErlaine on the Rolling Wave of 26th/27th July last. 

    The question: From what Ulster counties does the music on the “Dear Dark Mountain” CD come? Plenty of clues in the programme with Seán and you can listen back to it all on this page.
