  1. 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

  2. The Great Irish Famine

    Melvyn Bragg and guests discuss why the potato crop failures in the 1840s had such a catastrophic impact in Ireland. It is estimated that one million people died from disease or starvation after the blight and another two million left the country within the decade. There had been famines before, but not on this scale. What was it about the laws, attitudes and responses that made this one so devastating?

  3. The Time Machine

    Melvyn Bragg and guests discuss the ideas explored in HG Wells’ novella, published in 1895, in which the Time Traveller moves forward to 802,701 AD. There he finds humanity has evolved into the Eloi and Morlocks, where the Eloi are small but leisured fruitarians and the Morlocks live below ground, carry out the work and have a different diet. Escaping the Morlocks, he travels millions of years into the future, where the environment no longer supports humanity.

  4. Alan Turing

    Melvyn Bragg and guests discuss Alan Turing (1912-1954) whose 1936 paper On Computable Numbers effectively founded computer science. Immediately recognised by his peers, his wider reputation has grown as our reliance on computers has grown. He was a leading figure at Bletchley Park in the Second World War, using his ideas for cracking enemy codes, work said to have shortened the war by two years and saved millions of lives. That vital work was still secret when Turing was convicted in 1952 for having a sexual relationship with another man for which he was given oestrogen for a year, or chemically castrated. Turing was to kill himself two years later. The immensity of his contribution to computing was recognised in the 1960s by the creation of the Turing Award, known as the Nobel of computer science, and he is to be the new face on the £50 note.

  5. Cli Donnellan Interview (Fiddle)

    The elusive nya! Making tunes your own, ornamentation and phrasing and the old East Clare style. Francie Donnellan, Seamus Bugler, Martin Woods and a tune by the stove. Learning, loving, leaving the music, and returning. ‘Songs My Father Sang,’ the journey, knowing yourself and the truth in music.

  6. The Rolling Wave Ep 11 The Star Above the Garter

    In 1969 Siblings Julia Clifford and Denis Murphy from Kerry recorded an album called The Star Above the Garter for Claddagh Records.

  7. Mary McEvilly-Butler Interview (Fiddle) — The Blarney Pilgrims Podcast

    A Supergroup at the National Celtic Festival. Remembering and forgetting the names of tunes. Ballintubber, County Mayo and musicians in the house. The freedom of the open road, to Boston and Australia. Maintaining a love of kids even when you’ve been teaching for twenty years or so, and fostering a growth mindset - in children, and yourself.

    Thanks to Una McAlinden of the National Celtic Festival at Portarlington for giving us the opportunity to hang out in 2019 when we first met Mary. And thanks to Mark Butler for his technical help with the recording.
