    The Rolling Wave

    Traditional and folk music in Ireland, presented by Peter Browne

    A new and interesting CD, Ceol Ársa na bPíb, from piper Éanna Ó Cróinín, tracks from the TV series The Transatlantic Sessions and previews of some upcoming June traditional and folk events including the Doolin Folk Festival and the John McKenna Traditional Weekend - also the results of our Rolling Wave Quiz and a new question for our next competition.

    Competition

    Congratulations to Declan Conneely, Moycullen and Geraldine Greene, Ennis - winners of copies of Charlie Piggott and Gerry Harrington’s  CD “The New Road”.

    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.
