Show 267 – Bealtaine and Mother’s Day

posted in: Past Shows

We’re into the month of May, and while much of the US is still digging out from Winter, the ancient Celts celebrated Bealtaine–the first of May–as the start of Summer. And, there’s also Mother’s Day right around the corner. Katie Marie has put together an hour of trad music celebrating both Bealtaine and Mother’s Day.

This week, we feature artists: Pádraigín Ní Uallacháin; Eliot Grasso; Cathie Ryan; Flook; Randal Bays And Roger Landes; Bodega; T With The Maggies; Dervish; Ranarim; Martha Guiney; Danú; Joanie Madden, Brian Conway, Billy McComiskey, and Brendan Dolan; Three Mile Stone; Randal Bays; and Poitín.

The FairPlé score for this week: 47
