“Where the Road Takes Me” on C103 This Sunday at 7pm

We thank Presenter, John Greene for advance notice regarding this Sept. 1st 2019 Sunday evening’s programme at 7pm on C103.  (S.R.)

You Know the old saying – ‘It’s an ill wind that doesn’t blow some good’.

And you can apply this to the Furey Brothers who were formed by accident, as a result of an accident. 

Now, over forty years together, they have been entertaining audiences worldwide ever since. 

This week on ‘Where the road takes me’, John Greene takes us on a journey down memory lane with George and Eddie Furey.

We hear about having to choose between the pick and shovel or music.

A stint on Top of the Pops and teaching Kool & the Gang how to party Irish style.

Playing inside Carnegie Hall and busking outside of it.

Coping with the death of Paul, and the departure of Finbarr.

And in between the chat, there’s music as well,  including ‘Sweet Sixrteen’, and the story behind it.

Music for Marie: The Shandrum Céilí Band in Concert This Sunday at 8pm in Knocknagree Church

A night of celebration and remembrance for Marie Collins who passed away in January 2018 will take place on the August Bank Holiday Sunday (4th) in Knocknagree Church, Co. Cork and all proceeds are going to Sudden Adult Death Ireland. In store for those in attendance is an evening of traditional music, song and dance hosted by Three-in-a-row All-Ireland Champions, The Shandrum Céilí Band.

Concert organiser Timmy Collins said: My mom, Marie, has been described as a pillar of the community and was adored by many. Originally from Knocknagree, she married my Dad, Danny, in 1992 and made the big move to Doon, Kiskeam. She loved music and bestowed upon me, more so than anyone else, my love and loyalty for Sliabh Luachra music. I also got my skill for organisation and social media from her, long before she set up her business DigiPulse Marketing. We will remember and celebrate her at this very special event – Ní hé líon na bport, ach feabhas an cheoil.  [read more …] “Music for Marie: The Shandrum Céilí Band in Concert This Sunday at 8pm in Knocknagree Church”
