Hello, Shannon Heaton joins us on the Blarney Pilgrims Podcast this week. Hope you enjoy, it's such a great chat. Details below:


A Belgian neighbour in Nigeria and a first encounter with the recorder and whistle; traditional music in Thailand and a global musical imagination; Maria Carey, melismatic singing, Paddy Tunney and the Ulster song tradition; Irish music with Chris and Aidan and John, and meeting Matt Molloy. Holding on to a singer so they don’t drift away. Composing, teaching and podcasting, constructing a living in music. And, you know, heart and soul stuff - like hope.

To listen, stream or download simply click a link below:

This was a lovely experience, recording this episode. Early in the Boston morning for Shannon, late in the Barwon Heads night for us.

Thank you Shannon.

Right, go on, good luck.,

Yes! I listened to the Kevin Crawford and Shannon Heaton podcasts and they were loads of fun. I'm thinking I may check out the mandolin players as well on the podcast. Thank you for putting those together.
