Show 077 – Free For All-Storm Edition (2019-09-07)

posted in: Past Shows

Katie and Joe bring in this week’s selections based simply on what caught their attention in the world of Celtic music. At the recording time of this episode, Hurricane Dorian is still churning up the eastern seaboard of the US after decimating the islands of Bermuda, so we’ve included some storm songs and tunes towards the end of the episode. This week, we have some brand new releases from Flook and Matt Molloy as well as tracks from Páraic Mac Donnchadha, Johnny Óg Connolly, Emma Sweeney, Claire Egan, Kiérah, Marie & Martin Reilly, Marla Fibish & Jimmy Crowley, The Friel Sisters, Dougie McLean, Coda, and d’Bize. Our FairPlé score this week is an almost-perfect 47!
