Show 198 – Free For All

posted in: Past Shows

Katie Marie and Joe spent the first week of January prowling the dusty corners of the internet for Celtic albums we had not yet collected, and we were -not- disappointed. Trad musicians have been working hard during this pandemic to create carefully crafted and thoughtful releases. You, dear listener, can make a world of difference and raise the spirits of these artists by supporting their efforts and purchasing their albums when you can.

This week, Katie Marie and Joe play: Aaron O’Hagan & Luke Ward, Alan Kelly Gang, The Alt, Anthony Quigney, Robbie Hannan, Tolka, The Lilies of the Midwest, Benoît et Colin, Sarah McQuaid, Foolin in Doolin, Eamon O’Leary & Jefferson Hamer (The Murphy Beds), Muireann Nic Amhlaoibh, Ship in the Clouds, Caroline Keane, and The Fire.

Our FairPlé score this week: 47
