Dick Spottswood’s Irish Music Special

WAMU 88.5 presents an Irish music special in recognition of St. Patrick's Day, hosted by Dick Spottswood. Johnny Doran plays the Irish pipes, and we'll hear a Hibernian love song from the Harrigan and Hart songbook. Plus, Gid Tanner's Skillet Lickers and new world versions of ancient Irish reels. We'll also hear the beautiful voice of Delia Murphy and music from fiddler Neil O'Boyle.
