Gaitas de Fora - Irish and Portuguese Trad/Folk
Gaitas de Fora (which means ‘pipes from abroad’ in Portuguese) is/will be a radio program and subsequent podcast which will air on a very small and very local Portuguese radio station in a town called Torre de Moncorvo. The idea behind the program was to play a mixture of local/Portuguese traditional music and Irish music with perhaps some other music from around the world thrown in. While still very much in an embryonic stage (the first program will air this Thursday), our idea is to try and engage with some local musicians and Irish ones too.
So, what I am asking is this; If you play music, solo or in a group, and you would like some exposure (however small that may be!), you could get in touch with us and if you have a nice recording we would gladly play it and give you some exposure on our blog (http://gaitasdefora.wordpress.com/). And, just to say, no ones making any money from this, we just want to make a nice program that engages with musicians!
That’s the proposal, but if anyone has any ideas, or questions we would love to hear from you. Unfortunately, the blog is only in Portuguese but maybe in the future will will start posting in English too….
Anyway, we hope to hear from you soon.
