    The Rolling Wave

    Traditional and folk music in Ireland, presented by Peter Browne

    Mick Moloney brings his group "The Green Fields of America" to the TLT Theatre in Drogheda for the showcase concert at this year's Johnstons Folk Festival and we hear some of the artists: piper Jerry O'Sullivan, accordion player Billy McComiskey and some Irish American songs sung by Mick himself who is an expert in this area. Also new CDs from Colm Naughton (banjo) and Niamh Dunne (songs).
