    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.

    Competition

    Congratulations to Katie O'Driscoll of Passage West and Pat Dalton of Glasnevin who each got the correct answer to our question about what Willie Clancy's main instrument was. And of course it was the uilleann pipes. The prize - now on its way to both winners - is a copy of Louise Mulcahy's new CD "Tuning the Road"
     
    Our new Rolling Wave quiz is for the new booklet and double CD of complete recordings by the famous Irish-American flute player John McKenna: "The Buck from the Mountain".
