Show 156 – First Day Of Spring

posted in: Past Shows

After a pandemic-subdued St. Patrick’s Day, Katie and Joe celebrate the Spring Equinox with a Spring-themed show this week, featuring music from around the Celtic world. Although folks in parts of the U.S. may still be staring at a thick layer of snow, it won’t be too long before the early flowers start pushing above the snow.

This week, we play: Mossie Martin, John Doyle, Dylan Foley & Dan Gurney, Ed Miller, David Munnelly & Jonas Fromseier, Nicole Rabata, Danu, De Danann, Dick Gaughan, Olion Byw, Padraig Rynne, Donal Lunny & Sylvain Barou, Bagad Kemper, and Paddy Keenan.

Our FairPlé score this week: 23
