Show 173 – Buttons, Banjos, and Bagpipes

posted in: Past Shows

It’s the Three Instruments of the Apocalypse: Accordions, Banjos, and Bagpipes. Although the butt of jokes and subject of cartoons, in the hands of skilled players, these instruments showcase traditional Celtic music in the best possible light.

The artists we play this week are: Mary Rafferty; Angelina Carberry & Martin Quinn; Dermot Byrne, Éamonn Coyne & John Doyle; Solas; Fásta; Kathryn Tickell; Aoibheann & Pamela Quelly; Beoga; Louise Mulcahy; Sharon Shannon; Boxing Banjo; Theresa O’Grady; Lily Gems & Eileen O’ Driscoll; Josephine Marsh; Joe Burke; and Mick McAuley.

Our FairPlé score this week is 63
