Show 027 – Free Reed Frenzy (2018-08-04)

posted in: Past Shows

It’s our special episode featuring accordions and concertinas, which are the driving force behind great Celtic dance music. “Free Reed” refers to the finely-tuneds metal reeds that vibrate inside accordions, melodions, and concertinas as opposed to the wooden reeds of bagpipes.We’ve got some great music for your listening enjoyment this week! We feature danceable music from box players Damien Connolly, Joe Burke, Sharon Shannon, Caitl?n & Ciar?n, and Joe Cooley. We even sneak in a fantastic accordion set from Cajun group, Beausoleil and a Breton An Dro from Etienne Grandjean.
