June 23rd 2017 - Calling The Tune. Great Irish Instrumentals.

The focus in previous weeks has tended towards the singing of the songs so this week we decided to go the other direction.

Here is the new playlist featuring some great Irish instrumental tracks....some very well know pieces and some a little more obscure.

Listen on.


June 16th 2017 - Heavenly Sounds. Great Irish Female Vocalists.

So as last week it was songs about women, this week it really had to be a selection of some of the best Irish female singers.

The reality is more have been left out than have been included so listen out for part two in the future. Enjoy these incredible vocalists....


June 9th 2017 - Always A Lady. Great Irish Songs About Women.

A set of Irish songs all about women, not all of them are love songs mind you !

Tracks range from old classics like The Dubliner's version of 'Molly Malone' to more contemporary tunes like U2's 'The Sweetest Thing'.


June 2nd 2017 - Sing With Us. Great Irish Vocals & Lyrics.

So we thought we'd kick off with a selection of classic songs that feature the both the range of vocal dexterity and widespread subject matter that Irish artists have displayed over the years.

They are all great tracks but particular favourites of ours include the brilliant Irish ska of 'Courtin' in the Kitchen' and the version of 'Spancill Hill' which stays true but adds something new.

There are a couple of interesting cover versions of non Irish written songs you might spot also ! Enjoy them all...
