    Listen

    The Rolling Wave

    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.

    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

    Competition

    A new competition to speed us through the winter on The Rolling Wave: We have 2 copies of the new CD by Tony Mac Mahon and Steve Cooney – “Live in Spiddal – Scaoil Amach an Pocaide” given to us by Raelach Records.

    The question: From what county in Ireland does Tony Mac Mahon come?
