Máirtín Staunton (Flute) - Episode 54 - The Blarney Pilgrims Traditional Irish Music Podcast
The northern flute style; working the bar at Matt Molloy’s pub; capturing songs for posterity; on sean-nós singing, music as a release; life in Boston, and the regional sound of Melbourne.
Again, this interview was a long time coming. We had actually planned to record it the week Covid hit so we pulled the plug. Now fast forward 12 weeks and we finally got to sit down, face-to-face, with Máirtín, and believe us, it was worth the wait.
In this episode Máirtín plays:
The Lobster (An Gliomach)
Tripping Up The Stairs
Anach cuain (Slow-air dedicated to Ben Duffy)
Long Slender Sally / The Gosson That Bate His Father
