Program 1581: Tucked Away (September 12, 2013) Week 37

Celtic musicians are often interested in forging a global fusion. Here are some that also strive to preserve distinct regional voices.  They include flute player Cathal McConnell’s with a collection of old field recordings and more hidden treasures with singers Mairead Ni Mhaonaigh (pron: Mair-aid Nee Weeney) and Christine Kydd, and fiddlers Pete Clark and Chris Stout.
