C-Ville Weekly published a fascinating article about the Blue Ridge Tunnel project. Also, please don’t forget Kevin Donleavy’s radio show this Saturday:
A chairde and pals,
Time for another program of Irish traditional music on-line. The date is this Saturday, Dec. 29, and the show is ATLANTIC WEEKLY PART TWO. It will air, as usual, from 10 am till 12 noon in the States, and 3 to 5 pm in Ireland.
What can you expect to hear on this show? Great instrumental music from Andrew MacNamara and The Lahawns will open the show. Other groups you will hear are Skylark, Flashpoint, the Chieftains, and Flash Company. Singers include Brian Moore, Terry O’Neill, Grainne Holland, and Ron Kavana. There will be “Spancill Hill” especially for the memory of Robbie McMahon of Co. Clare, and “The Mad Goat” (Poc ar Buile) for Paidi O’ Se of Kerry. And a lot more….
Here are the easy steps for listening on-line :
On your computer, go to WTJU.net. Next, select Listen Live on the right side bar. Then, choose between Ogg and MP3.
I hope you will have a wee listen this Saturday, and also the following Saturday (Jan. 5) when I’ll bring you another ATLANTIC WEEKLY program at the same time. What more could you ask to begin a new year ?
