This week’s show features the Irish wooden flute. In the hands of a skilled player, this instrument–in spite of its simple nature–is capable of extraordinary speed and expressiveness. Joe hosts solo this week, and he chose this week’s topic after learning the news that the Irish music world lost yet another great figure, master flute maker, Mike Grinter.This week features Claire Mann, Catherine McEvoy, Sarah Bauhan, Éamonn O’Riordan & Tony O’Connell, Nuala Kennedy, Sylvain Barou, Steph Geremia, Danú, ,Skip Healy, Corquiéu, Luar na Lubre, Matt Molloy & John Carty With Arty McGlynn, Joanie Madden, Enda Seery, and Lunasa
