Show 306 – 2023 Retrospective Free For All

posted in: Past Shows

?It’s a Free For All featuring 2023 releases! In this week’s show, Katie Marie and Joe put together a collection of tracks where the only unifying theme is that they were released in 2023. Last year saw a fabulous variety of trad and trad-adjacent Celtic releases, where picking one track from each release resulted in over three hours of music that we need to boil down to a single hour.
The artists this week: Réalta, Martha Guiney, Genticorum, Deira Band, Plúirín na mBan, Sorcha Costello, Adrienne O’Shea, Dàimh, Jake James & Brenda Dowling, Fiddlers2, Fiachra O’Regan, The London Lasses, and Blackie O’Connell & Cyril O’Donoghue.

Our FairPlé score this week: 57
