Hello! #373 of The London Ear on RTÉ 2XM gives me the opportunity to play a full hour of brand new Irish music. 2022 is looking like continuing on with the fine vintage of Irish music that 2020 and 2021 have produced.
It’s always a pleasure to play music from artists I already know and to give a platform to those I’m playing for the first time. Hope you all enjoy(ed) this week’s programme.
Check out the video for Rowan’s Irish To My Bones
This was my first chance to play the new track from Rowan.. what a belter! Their debut album, ‘Does It Make You Happy?’ is out in May. Pre-order here. Warning: Flashing Lights in the video.
