BBC Radio 4 will feature interviews and recordings of two young Clare musicians competing in this year’s Fleadh Cheoil in Derry, in a broadcast at 11-11.30am on Friday 23 August.
One is Jessica Nea from Kilfenora – on piano accompaniment, fiddle and in both the U12 Inis Og céilí band and music group – and the other we understand is Fergal Breen from Doora-Barefield, U18 flute, uilleann pipes and piano.
In Ireland, Radio 4 can best be heard on-line through the Internet, LW Radio 198Mhz or via Satellite (Sky etc).
In the picture, Jessica is being recorded by co-producer Claire Burgoyne accompanied by her father Colin Nea, as can also be heard on Colin’s recent CD “Between the Jigs & the Reels”.
Good luck to all the Munster finalists from Kilfenora and Clare (including Tara Howley who came first in O18 uilleann pipes) who are travelling to Derry!
