Two famous musicians passed away in the last week, accordion-player Finbarr Dwyer and tin-whistle player Seán Potts. We hear recordings of both, archive recordings of Micho Russell, a preview of upcoming events, a song from Scotland, another from the Isle of man and a new competition for copies of the new CD from the Gloaming.
