Charlottesville’s Kevin Donleavy has an Irish music program on air tomorrow. I hope you’ll tune in via internet! He explains how, below. I always enjoy hearing Mick O’Grady play at the Cobblestone pub, and he’ll be featured in the program.
Hi, music heads and tune-fanciers,
The next radio program of Irish trad music presented by Kevin Donleavy can be heard on-line as usual this Saturday, May 18, from 10 am till 12 noon. (Irish listeners should tune in from 3 to 5 pm that day.) The program is called ATLANTIC WEEKLY PART TWO, and here are the easy listening steps :
To listen on your internet radio, select WTJU in Virginia, USA, or pick up the “Tune In Radio” app for your iPhone or other mobile device and easily dial up the station.
On your computer, go to http://wtju.net. Next, select Listen Live on the right side bar. Then, choose between Ogg and MP3.
This week’s musical material includes singers Andy Irvine, Paddy Reilly, Tim Browne, Muireann Nic Amhlaoibh (Maryann McCauley), and Christy Moore. There will be tunes from banjo expert Kieran Hanrahan and fine box-player Danny O’Mahony. The fiddlers this week are Mick O’Grady and Washington/Baltimore’s own Jesse Smith. And if you like the sounds of uilleann pipes and fiddle, you’ll enjoy tunes from Mick O’Brien and Caoimhin O Raghallaigh.
There will also be some chat about such Irish organizations as Comhaltas, Clann Mhor, and BRIMS (the Blue Ridge Irish Music School).
Hope that you can have a listen on Saturday ….
