  1. 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.

    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!

  3. Ep. #323: Nick Cave and Warren Ellis | Kreative Kontrol

    Nick Cave and Warren Ellis are two of the world’s most iconic, influential, and inspiring musicians working today. Originally from Australia, Nick Cave has altered the course of rock ‘n’ roll and invented a new kind of leading man in bands like the Birthday Party and Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds. His countryman Warren Ellis is a gifted and daring multi-instrumentalist, renowned for his work in Dirty Three and he joined Cave, as a member of the Bad Seeds, in the mid-1990s. The pair have become close collaborators in the Bad Seeds, they worked together in a a now defunct band called Grinderman, and together they’ve also composed riveting and acclaimed scores and soundtracks for theatrical productions and films like The Proposition, The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford, The Road, Hell or High Water, and most recently, the feature films War Machine and Django. Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds dispatched a well-received album called Skeleton Tree in the fall of 2016 and in May of 2017, Mute Records released a comprehensive retrospective called Lovely Creatures: The Best of Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds (1984-2014), and they’ve been touring behind these efforts lately. Captured in a hotel restaurant on the afternoon of their second sold out show at Massey Hall in Toronto, here Warren and Nick discuss their history as friends and colleagues, how Warren wound up in the Bad Seeds, how they work together and their relationships to melody and noise, Nick’s unique relationship with his audience and why he needs them now, recording Skeleton Tree, upcoming plans, and much more. Sponsored by Pizza Trokadero, the Bookshelf, and Planet Bean Coffee.

  8. Episode 03-Every Tuesday at Nine | shannonheatonmusic.com

    It’s Springtime in Boston. And this month’s episode is a fresh invitation to connect with people, and emerge from Winter!

    John Williams and Amy Shoemaker

    I chat with Tina Lech in Boston, John Williams in Chicago, Eoin O’Neill in Clare, and Brian Conway in White Plains, NY about the sessions they lead. I learn how each player runs these distinct weekly music gatherings–and what Irish music means to them, and the listeners who come each week.

    And trust me: whether you already play the accordion, or you’ve never been to an Irish session in your life, the story here goes way beyond a few tunes in a pub.

    I hope you’ll join me as I try to decode what sessions are all about. My conversations with the session leaders–and with Boston producer Brian O’Donovan, fiddle teacher Laurel Martin, and flute players Melissa Foster and Scott Boag opened my mind and my heart. There’s plenty of music heres, too.
