  • I did a "preview" of this concert yesterday on our Aberdeen community radio folk / traditional music programme, "The Wednesday Session",  featuring music by some of the flute players due to perform at this concert tomorrow night. 
    To hear tracks from Nuala Kennedy, Tom Oakes, Niall Kenny, Sarah Hayes, Cathal McConnell, and Hamish Napier, and also Danny Boyle and Kevin O'Neill [ a bit submerged in the "St. Roch's Ceili Band" from Glasgow ] - go here :


    You can hear the programme by using the "Listen Again" button, near the centre of the website page.

    Better still get yourselves along to the concert, the sessions, or the classes on Saturday. It's going to be a great weekend.
