The Rolling Wave Sunday 17 March 2013

Congratulations to our two winners of copies of the CD Ushers Island. The correct answer is that Ushers Island is on the River Liffey quays in Dublin City. There were many imaginative answers!

The winners:  
Séamus Byrne, Sandycove, Co.Dublin and David Barnes, Cwmystwyth, Wales.

Our new competition is for two copies of Christy Moore's album Lily and the question - not too taxing, we hope - where is Christy from? 

Answers by email, post or Twitter to therollingwave@rte.ie or The Rolling Wave, Music Programmes, RTÉ Radio One or @TheRollingWave.

Good Luck!

Traditional and folk music in Ireland, presented by Peter Browne

Tonight we highlight Irish entries for the Prix Svetozar Stracina – a prestigious radio competition for folk music recordings run by Slovak Radio and the EBU. Also, recordings by Clannad and Iarla Ó Lionáird of an O’Carolan song and tune – Eleanor Plunkett – and some other interesting recordings including “The Magpie” by the Unthanks, reels played on the harmonica by Noel Battle and Colonel Fraser on the pipes by Lottie Cullen.
