The Rolling Wave Sunday 29 December 2019
Coming Up on Sunday 12th April
Singer Mary McPartlan sadly passed away this week and tonight we have some excerpt of Mary from the RTÉ Radio 1 archives as well as some examples of her fantastic singing.
Also on tonight's show a number of musicians have chosen tracks for us to play especially for Easter Sunday- they are Aoife Granville, Dónal Lunny, Josephine Marsh, Caoimhín Ó Raghallaigh, Mairéad Ní Mhaonaigh, Jack Talty and Muireann Nic Amhlaoibh.
And we have a very special track of Ben Lennon playing Lord Gordon's reel recorded way back around 1962.
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.
