Show 176 – The Four Elements

posted in: Past Shows

This week, Katie Marie and Joe put together a show featuring songs and tunes about the four elements: earth, fire, water, and air. The idea for this show came about after they finally settled back in after scrambling to get out of the way of one of the many fires burning in the west, at the same time reading stories from friends back east inundated with rain and flooding.

Our playlist this week includes music from: The Fire, Barry & Laura Kerr, Mícheál Ó Raghallaigh, Crowfoot, Eliot Grasso & Dave Cory, Julie Fowlis (featuring Eddi Reader), Calum Stewart, Caroline Keane, Frank Harte & Donal Lunny, Altan, Michael Black, Deaf Shepherd, Trian, Arcady, and Imar.

The FairPlé score for this show: 53.
