Show 221 – Women in Celtic Music

posted in: Past Shows
[This episode originally aired 06/12/21] This week, Katie Marie and Joe put together a mix of music featuring women artists, or bands where women command the sound of the group. We were also lucky enough to sit down with Nuala Kennedy to discuss her latest project, Long Woman’s Grave, a collaboration among Nuala, singer-songwriter, S. J. McArdle, and bassist, Trevor Hutchinson.

This week, we play: Connla, The Ivy Leaf, Shannon, John And Maggie Carty, Julie Fowlis, Liz Knowles, Olion Byw, John Doyle-Liz Carroll, Long Woman’s Grave, Matt & Shannon Heaton, Zoë Conway, and The Friel Sisters.

Our FairPlé score this week is 100.
