  3. The Blarney Pilgrims Podcast Episode 9: Kevin Burke

    A boy in post war London, learning the fiddle from Ms. Christopherson, bumping into Joe Burke at JFK after failing to get Arlo Guthrie’s phone number from Directory Enquiries, and so much more. This was delightful. Have a listen.

  4. Ep 223 Fair Plé to the “Lovely Girls” of Trad & Folk Music

    Waking the Feminists shone a light on the representation of women in Irish theatre. Now, women in Irish traditional and folk music are trying to address the gender imbalance across their sector through the Fair Plé initiative. It began with a meeting at the Cobblestone pub in Dublin and two of the women who were there that night – harpist Una Monaghan and singer Pauline Scanlon –speak to Róisín Ingle on today’s podcast and perform the song My Dearest Dear. This Saturday Fair Plé events are taking place around the world as part of a day of action, ahead of a showcase event at the Cork Midsummer Festival on June 16.

  5. Episode 05-Handed Down | shannonheatonmusic.com

    It’s warming up in many corners of the world, and many players are heading to Summer Music Camps!

    But of course, music camps are just ONE way that Irish traditional music is handed down. And for this episode, I traveled to Pearl River, NY, Galway City, and to neighborhoods around Boston, to talk with musicians about how they learned their music, and how this has led them to pass it on.

    Séan Clohessy

    There’s big picture inspiration here from Sean Clohessy:“We have rhythm all around us—whether it’s breathing, a heart beat, blinking, walking, the seasons.. there’s rhythm in everything. Irish music is an easy way to perceive a lot of these things, and see things we can’t see with our eyes.”

    And there are intimate Irish music house sessions and concerts that have inspired Josie Coyne:“Falling asleep listening to amazing music, ever since I was really young.To meet all these musicians.. It’s pretty great.”

    And wisdom from Séamus Connolly, whose Collection of Irish Music is available online to all!“If traditional music is locked up, it doesn’t advance or move on. It’s very much a living tradition, and it should be that way.”

    Flanagan, Mulvahill, Furlong

    I hope you’ll join me as I talk with Rose Flanagan, Margie Mulvahill, Patty Furlong, Séan Clohessy, Josie and her dad John Coyne, Louis DePaor, Seamus Connolly, and Elizabeth Sweeney about their activities around traditional music, and how they feel about passing it on.

    Whether you already play tunes, sing ballads, dance sean nós steps.. or you don’t know anything about Irish culture… these conversations speak about friendships, community, and generosity.

    Seamus Connolly

    Read on for full music and poetry credits below. And take a peek at one of this month’s guests, Josie Coyne. This was back in 2013 (she’s 4 years older now..), when she joined fiddler Mick Conneely for a set.

    And here is Séamus Connolly at the NEA National Heritage Fellowship Concert from June 2014:

    Next month’s episode will air Tuesday July 11th. It’ll be a summer short about backers (accompanists). And on Thursday July 13th, I’ll be guest host of the Celtic Music Podcast. Hope you’ll check it out!
