    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

    Competition

    Congratulations to the two winners of the Rolling Wave January quiz: Michael Cronin of Ballincollig and Dan Buckley of Loughlinstown.  There was a very good response and these winners were judged to be the best two of the many entries we received – but it was a close run thing! The prizes are copies of the new CD Didn’t She Dance and Dance by Paudie O’Connor and Aoife Ní Chaoimh.

    For the new quiz, the singing group Lynched have given two copies of their new CD Cold Old Fire. One of the songs on it is Daffodil Mulligan – her mother was of course Biddy Mulligan and we want to know where was Biddy Mulligan from?
