The Undead #96 - New Music from Ireland
Friday, January 29, 1988
There's more to contemporary Irish music than jigs and reels. On this program, harpist Derek Bell plays an excerpt from Sean O'Riada's 30-year-old Gaelic Mass and Planxty combines old and new with "Taimse Im Chodiadh," for bagpipes and synthesizer. Plus, a number of Irish musicians now living in the U.S. perform works for various combinations of instruments and voices.
