Show 021 – Summer Solstice (2018-06-23)

posted in: Past Shows

It’s the solstice, and summer has officially begun! The days are also starting to get shorter, but we’ll ignore that for now. Katie and Joe have chosen some songs and tunes that are ideal for lying on the beach, mowing the lawn, or moving flocks to the high pasture.We’ve also taken the opportunity to plug in a bunch of new material that’s been building up. There’s new releases from The High Seas and Artisan Row, and releases new to the station from R?alta, Mary McNamara And Sorcha Costello, Dylan Foley and Dan Gurney, Alan Reid & Rachel Conlon, Niamh Parsons & Graham Dunne, and Journey North.
