One of my favourite podcasts. Great way to find out what is going on with Irish music scene. Hard to find musicians giving this much time elsewhere.
For those who are musically adventurous and actively seek out new, exciting, and creatively challenging musicians they won't necessarily hear on mainstream American radio. Each show is a combination of interview segments and highlights from the featured band's latest album. Always interesting and informative, Eist is the first thing I listen to every time a new episode is released.
An interesting podcast featuring the best of new Irish music
Eist releases a brand new podcast the first of every month, featuring a variety of contemporary Irish artists. So far, artists on the show have varied from country singers, to post punk rockers, to singer songwriters...and then some! Each episode features an interview with the artist, and several of his/her songs. The podcast sounds very professional, and the host does a very good job asking the artists interesting questions so that you learn more than the just the bog standard information about an artist. If you are interested in the best of contemporary Irish music, this is the place to discover artists that are already successful in Ireland, and are beginning to build an international audience. The artists featured on the show vary so much, that even if you don't like an artist one month, it is worth checking back the next month because the guest is likely to be completely different. I really love this podcast, and can't wait to download it the first of every month! I think it would appeal to anyone who is interested in Irish music, Ireland, or up-and-coming musicians.
