Description

" 'England gave me everything I ever wanted.' " The Quarehawk. Big Tom, Margo, the Manchester scene; Irish, English, and in-between. A love of England and making a whole out of two halves. Grieving, and crafting an album. Fathers, sons, boys, men. Asturias, the flute and identifying as one thing or another. Getting Kepa Junkera to play on your album. And so much more. Brilliant stuff.



The tunes:

Quarehawk (from Michael's album of the same name)

The Boys of Bluehill and the Stockport Hornpipe

The Visitor (from Quarehawk)

The Shores of Loch Bran

Muñeira de Rengos

Paddy's Return and the Trip to Athlone

So, for the price of a pint, or a half pint for that matter, you can help keep this show on the road and be safe in the knowledge you have a halo above your head.



For your good deed you will secure your place in traditional Irish music podcast heaven. But most importantly, you’ll have helped pay for the other 99% of listeners that don’t or can’t chip in.



And that, my friend, is a hell-of-a-nice thing to do.
