The Rolling Wave

At the recent Scoil Samhraidh Willie Clancy The Rolling Wave met English folk musicians John and Katie Howson.  John recently released a fascinating cd of sean nós singing 'Tabhair Mo Ghrá go Conamara - Bring My Love to Connemara' on his label Veteran Records and he talks about the story behind these recordings. They also talk about English Folk Music and the connections and differences between their music and Irish Traditional Music. 


We also play two tracks from Gay McKeon's brand new cd of solo piping 'The Turning of the Geese'.
