  1. Aoife Kelly Interview (Concertina)

    ‘We ARE the source.’ John Kelly of Capel Street and Scattery Island. Hiding the fiddle under your jacket in Dublin in the rare oul times. Strange hornpipes, slip jigs, slides. Patsy Geary, Jimmy O’Donahue and Kilfenora’s three bakeries. The memory palace and preserving a life. Ireland, Australia, Tommy Potts posters and the evocative power of seagulls. Searching out the music in Darwin. Sydney, Melbourne and going back home.

  2. Tara Howley Interview (Whistle, concertina and uilleann pipes)

    Kilfenora; the nervous you get playing in front of ten people, worse than playing in front of a thousand. Leaving your ego at the door. Being happy with what you’re doing, being happy within yourself. First hearing the pipes and the trials of competition. Restless creativity, and finding your way to Riverdance. Managing social media and the inner self. (And a Burmese Mountain Dog called Saoirse).

  3. Caitlín Nic Gabhann Interview (Concertina)

    Jig songs, syncopation and keeping away from the funky chicken tunes. Playing out til 4 in the morning with your dad on a Fleadh Saturday night. The magic of Donegal, chancing your arm for a Riverdance audition and not talking to Maria Carey at the pyramids. Finding your own musical voice. Battering, sets and the beauty of West Clare dancing. Youth trad Tinder, the elusive high G# and teaching the concertina to learners across the world.

  4. Eoghan Ó Ceannabháin Interview (Sean-nós, concertina, flute)

    Mitching classes to work on your music. Sean-nós: ‘My granny would have just called them songs.’ Tradition and change, art and technique and the soul of the thing. Writing in English, writing in Irish. Activism, collectivity and music as barriers against despair. https://www.blarneypilgrims.com/episodes/eoghan-ceannabhin-interview-sean-nos-concertina-flute
