The Rolling Wave Sunday 17 March 2013

Congratulations to Gobnait Ní Chrualaí of Maigh Chromtha and Kevin Hayes of Piltown who are the two winners of Jack Talty's CD "In Flow". The correct answer is of course that the concertina is most associated with Co. Clare. Many people had this answer right .

Here is our new competition and the prizes are copies of Dublin fiddle-player Liam O'Connor's CD "Loom". 

It was launched recently in TCD by another famous fiddle-player, Seán Keane. He has been a member of several well known traditional music groups in his lifetime - can you name any one of those in order to be in the hat and have a chance of winning?

Good luck!
