End of Season.....Looking forward to next season

Have been listening for just about a over a year now and have gone back and listened to all the episodes. I did not hear one episode that was not enjoyable from the perspective of music, tales from the artists, and ability to bring me back to personal memories and experiences around music from my early days in North of Ireland and beyond
Can’t wait for next seasons’ episodes

An Irish music lover’s companion

If you don’t play or sing but can’t get enough of Irish music, if your friends and family are happy you have a hobby but don’t quite get it, if you’re looking for deep dives into the topic: This is the next best thing to being there yourself in a pub in Boston or Chicago or Dublin or Dingle. The topics are well selected, the conversations are interesting and the music is of course spectacular. Just listen.

A fantastic labor of love

This show has the production values of the best in the business (this American life, 99% invisible) with the personal touch of blindboy. A true insiders guide to a music tradition, and how that tradition can effect and guide almost every aspect of life. Musicians will love it, but so will people who just enjoy well told stories.
