Congratulations to two winners of the Rolling Wave quiz for copies of Liam O'Connor's new CD "Loom". The question was about what groups fiddle-player Seán Keane was a member of and there were plenty of answers. We know of four ensembles: The Castle Ceilí Band, Ceoltóirí Chualann, The Chieftains and an unusual one - The Halfpenny Bridge Quartet. 

CDs go to Liz McMahon of Enniskerry, Co Wicklow and Noel Howard of Lissarda, Co Cork.

And here's a new quiz for copies of the debut CD by the group Ushers Island. 

We'd like to know where or what is Ushers Island?
