Show 303 – Heroes

posted in: Past Shows

This week, Katie Marie and Joe explore traditional Celtic music expressing the themes of heroes, freedom, and justice. Although the fight for civil rights and freedom were very different in Ireland than the struggle in the US in the ’60s, there are distinct parallels, as there is a universality in people clamoring for rights and freedom and the ruling class determined to preserve their power.

The artists this week: Andy M. Stewart And Manus Lunny, Na Mooneys, Preston Howard Wilde, Kierah, Len Graham, Molly’s Revenge, Beth Patterson & Patrick O’Flaherty, Shay Black, Charlie Piggott-Gerry Harrington, Warbelow Range, Karan Casey, Paddy Canny, Frank Harte-Donal Lunny, and Paddy Keenan & Paddy Glackin.

Our FairPlé score this week: 29
