received this email from a friend just now and thought it might be of interest to exiles, like myself, and fellow sessioneers from overseas.
"Last night’s Geantrai TV program on TG4 was hosted by Noel Hill from a pub in Corofin in County Clare. There’s great playing by Noel and also some wonderful flute and fiddle playing by such players as Kevin Crawford, James Cullinane, Peadar O’Loghlin, Maeve Donnelly, and others. It’s fabulous music. A wonderful bonus is that at the beginning of the program, there’s a short clip of a very young Noel playing on a television program, and seated next to him, though not playing, is none other than Seamus Ennis, whom I assume was the host of that show. You can view it by going to this link: http://www.tg4.tv/ click on "Ceol - Cartlann" on the left hand side and select the "Geantraí - 9 /1/2007" program. It’s fantastic!But you better hurry, I don’t believe these shows are archived for more than a week."
I apologise if this ought to be posted on the "Links" section of the site but wished to share this with as many as possible asap.
