Remember when I helped Jerry Crilly (my pal from the Cobblestone pub) find his ole pal Kevin Donleavy? Kevin lives in Virginia, which is why Jerry (a Dublin resident) requested my help. Well, Kevin has written to me several times since. He’s going to be featuring some of the music Jerry sent him on his WTJU radio show tomorrow! I hope you’ll tune in to learn something about traditional Irish music! See how, below:
A chairde and pals,
Just a reminder to switch on your radio this Saturday for another on-line program of Irish trad music. It’s the ATLANTIC WEEKLY PART TWO show, and the date is Dec. 1. As always, the broadcast time is 10 am till 12 noon, eastern US time (or 3 to 5 pm in Ireland). If you live near the Charlottesville, Virginia area, you can listen on WTJU, at 91.1 on the FM dial.
This week there will be whistle playing from both Enda Seery and Kathleen Conneely off their newish CDs. Among the younger groups you can hear are Realta from Belfast, Ioscaid from all over the Wee Six counties, and Flashback from Texas. Among the individual singers this week are Tadgh Maher and Jerry Reilly, Mairead Ni Mhaonaigh and Mairin Fahy, Jerry Crilly and Lenny Duff. There’s plenty to entertain even the most sophisticated and jaded ears ! Reels agus jigs galore !
Here are the easy steps to listen in on your computer. First, visit http://wtju.net. Next, select Listen Live on the right side bar. Then, choose between Ogg and MP3.
Hope that you can tune in this Saturday, wet the tea, and roll back the carpet.
