When I interviewed The Haar about the song Wild Rover, we had such a great chat about music that there was just too much to fit into a single episode! So, for all you music lovers out there, here are Molly, Cormac, Adam and Murray talk about their musical backgrounds and why they love traditional music so much.
Do buy their new album Where Old Ghosts Meet because it's excellent, and while you're at it you might want to snap up their equally wonderful first album too.
The Haar are:
Adam Summerhayes – fiddle
Murray Grainger – accordion and vibrandoneon
Cormac Byrne – bodhrán
Molly Donnery – vocal
Episode includes short excerpts of Wild Mountain Thyme and Whiskey in the Jar from Where Old Ghosts Meet.
Handed down is presented and produced by Jenny Shaw.
