  1. Nuala Kennedy Interview (Flute, whistle, singing)

    An absolute stoater! A Great Session = ‘The maximum fun possible, every night!’ From Dundalk to Belfast, and finding freedom in Edinburgh. Hamish Henderson and the wild nights in Sandy Bell’s. Mike One-Shirt and Luke Plumb; Deaf Shepherd and the great encouragers like Cathal McConnell. The consolations of music. House sessions in Venice Beach, meeting the daughter of the man who wrote Thíos Cois na Trá, and so much more. Awesome.

  3. Rita Farrell Interview (Uilleann pipes, flute)

    So much in here: piping as meditation and not setting fire to the old Ganley flute. Starting on the whistle but falling for the pipes despite the danger. The eternal conversation: reeds, drones and regulators. The session spaces of Belfast, open piping closed piping, Tommy Reck and saying ‘I Love You’ to Liam O’Flynn. Being a girl and running an all female session. A room tuned to G Minor, the Drogheda connection, the five string banjo and ‘Lovely Leitrim.’ Oh. And Robbie Williams and Graham Norton too. Bish Bash Bosh. What a treat.

  4. Michael Walsh Interview (Flute, whistle, singing)

    " ‘England gave me everything I ever wanted.’ " The Quarehawk. Big Tom, Margo, the Manchester scene; Irish, English, and in-between. A love of England and making a whole out of two halves. Grieving, and crafting an album. Fathers, sons, boys, men. Asturias, the flute and identifying as one thing or another. Getting Kepa Junkera to play on your album. And so much more. Brilliant stuff.

  5. 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
