    The Rolling Wave Sunday 28 April 2013


    The Rolling Wave

    Traditional and folk music in Ireland, presented by Peter Browne.

    We remember Paddy O’Donoghue, flute player, piper and founder member of the Tulla Ceilí Band in 1947, who passed away in January of this year, with extracts from an interview he did with Peter Browne four years ago at the age of 80.

    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.
