Does anyone know of any good trad music podcasts?

There must be something out there.
I’ve been listening to ‘Folkcast’, but I’ve deleted it because it’s not trad enough, and the delivery is too irritating.

The Clare FM website has a trad music show that you can download. It’s got adverts, but they give it a unique character…

Re: Does anyone know of any good trad music podcasts?

I second (or third) the recommendations for Clare FM’s trad shows. There are five podcasts per week, two hours each (including ads and news), so you’d have your hands full listening to them all on a regular basis. They’re all good, but my personal favorite is Claire Keville’s show on Tuesdays.

Alan O’Leary’s Copperplate podcast. It won’t get any more traditional than that:

Thistle and Shamrock is pretty good.
I couldn’t get any of the ClareFM ones to work in my iTunes.
Mike Harding, and now Mark Radcliffe, only plays an excerpt of each track. I always find that show a bit too ‘Cambridge’ as well.
I’ll try Alan O’Leary now…

I must say, The Copperplate Podcast is great!

Check out www.livetrad.com for some nice podcasts! 🙂

I also recommend Clare the FM trad archives. I also listen to the weekly 1 hour show presented by Robbie Hannan called Culan on http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b007cpq5, It’s not a podcast but you can listen to it for a week after the Sunday night airing of the show.

I’ll second the ‘West Wind’ podcasts.

As someone also mentioned, if you can do streaming on your device of choice Raidió na Gaeltachta has some very good trad programmes. I have the app on my Iphone now & listen wherever I go. (It’s actually the RTÉ app, on which you select RnaG.)

The Kitchen Sessions is a unique series of radio programmes broadcast live from homes in County Clare, Ireland as well as from the homes of Clare people abroad! Listen each Sunday evening at 5pm on Clare FM (http://www.clarefm.ie), check out the repeat on Wednesday at 7pm, or get the podcast. This video is just a flavour of a two hour radio programme broadcast from Toonagh Hall on 18th January 2009. The Kitchen Sessions is a Rag and Bone Production for Clare FM, supported by the BCI Sound & Vision Scheme and the Arts Offfice of Clare County Council.

Alan O‘Leary’s ’Copperplate’ certainly plays some fine trad music, as long as you can put up with the cringingly amateurish presentation. Alan blunders and bumbles his way through the show, sort Alan Partridge on a bad day, but as I say, the playlist is excellent!

Re: Does anyone know of any good trad music podcasts?

A little bit harsh there I think, vanman. I would describe the delivery more as jovial and avuncular.

Re: Does anyone know of any good trad music podcasts?

I don’t know how to do podcasts, but PBS radio station WGBH in Boston posts links to Brian O’Donovan’s Celtic Sojourn show on their website. He plays a wide range of old and new stuff, I have been listening to him for years.

Re: Does anyone know of any good trad music podcasts?

West Wind is fantastic…I find Celtic Sojourn a bit far out sometimes

Re: Does anyone know of any good trad music podcasts?

The West Wind is fantastic!!
