The Rolling Wave

The Rolling Wave

Two major figures in sean nós singing in the 20th century- Joe Heaney and Seán Ac Dhonncha- were both from Carna in Connemara and both born in October 1919. On tonight's programme we mark their centenary and celebrate their music with help from Dr. Síle Denvir from DCU and Seán Ac Dhonncha's son, Macdara. 

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.
