Show 024 – 6th Free For All (2018-07-14)

posted in: Past Shows

It’s Summertime up here in northwestern Nevada, which means it’s typical high desert weather: hot and cold in the same twenty four hour period. There’s no theme this week, but we do have a fine selection of Breton music in the middle of our show. Don’t worry, though–we’re not going to hit you up with the traditional, Breton biniou/bombarde combination, as that’s definitely an acquired taste. Katie also pulled up a couple of old 78s from the Internet Archive for research, and we realized that the music was so lively and danceable–even though it was from the 1920s–that we had to include a couple of cuts in this week’s show.We’ve got some new releases from flute player, Freya Rae & Louis Bingham and concertina player, Mary McNamara And Sorcha Costello. We also play some cuts from Deaf Shepherd, Noel Hill & Tony MacMahon, favorites The Friel Sisters, Lindsay Straw, Bridget Fitzgerald, and Jerry O’sullivan.
