I've shared this here and in the flute section. I hope that's ok but Rita is a great player and plays both in this episode.

Anyway there's so much in here, like: piping as meditation and not setting fire to the old Ganley flute. Starting on the whistle but falling for the pipes despite the danger. The eternal conversation: reeds, drones and regulators. The session spaces of Belfast, open piping closed piping, Tommy Reck and saying ‘I Love You’ to Liam O’Flynn. Being a girl and running an all female session. A room tuned to G Minor, the Drogheda connection, the five string banjo and ‘Lovely Leitrim.’ Oh. And Robbie Williams and Graham Norton too. Bish Bash Bosh. What a treat.

In this episode Rita plays:

Two jigs - Mama’s Pet and Hinchey’s Delight
Alexander’s Hornpipe and another one for which we don’t have a name…
Two McKenna Reels
The Sailor’s Cravate, I’m Waiting For You and Bonny Kate (from the playing of Tommy Reck)
The Drunken Gauger
and
Lovely Leitrim (thanks Mr & Mrs Farrell)

Every week we are amazed by how much fun we’ve had - seriously.
And then the next week we are amazed all over again.
