Re: The Great Scottish Flute Night

I did a "preview" of this concert yesterday on our community radio programme, featuring music by some of the flute players due to perform, but you might not have heard all of them before. To hear tracks from Nuala Kennedy, Tom Oakes, Niall Kenny, Sarah Hayes, Cathal McConnell, and Hamish Napier, and also Danny Boyle and Kevin O’Neill [ a bit submerged in the "St. Roch’s Ceili Band" from Glasgow ] - go here :

Maybe stating the "bleeding obvious", but to hear the programme, you need to use the "Listen Again" button, situated around the centre of the website page.

Better still get yourselves along to the concert, the sessions, or the classes on Saturday. It’s going to be a great weekend.
