Show 279 – Dog Days

posted in: Past Shows

With the recent spate of opressive heat baking the country, even reaching up to the high desert of northwestern Nevada, it’s definitely the Dog Days of Summer. Even though we don’t know the origin of that odd phrase, Katie Marie and Joe put together an hour of Celtic music featuring tunes and songs about dogs.

The artists this week: Bodega; Calico; Gerry O’Connor; Daoiri Farrell; Claire Egan; Karine Polwart & Dave Milligan; Áine Heslin; Sileas; Martin Hayes & Dennis Cahill; Angelina Carberry; Four Men & A Dog; Molly’s Revenge With Moira Smiley; Mary Rafferty; and Solas.

Our FairPlé score this week: 57
