Total Country Inchicore - Country To The 'Core
Pat Kiernan25/09/2018On The Raggle Taggle Celtic Folk Show this week we have the usual mixture of Folk, ballads, Irish & Scottish traditional music.

Jake Thackray tells how to correctly count sheep in "Old Molly Metcalf", we also have some wonderful Scottish Country Dance music.

We finish out the show with Margaret Burke Sheridan with a rare operatic recording from 1926. Margaret Burke-Sheridan was born in Castlebar, County Mayo on October 15th 1889. Known to her friends as Maggie or Peggy, she was the youngest of five children, her father was the local postmaster.She achieved a great deal but had a very sad start & end to her life, & died back in Dublin in 1958.

The story goes that while she was performing at the prestigious "La Scala" in Turin that a guy she broke up with died in one of those "Opera Boxes" while she was on stage & it had such a massive effect on her that she stopped singing & returned to Dublin to see out her days. She is buried in Glasnevin.

Pat Kiernan15/10/2018Another selection of Irish oldies on The Raggle Taggle Celtic Folk Show this week however there are no Scottish or English folk included in this lot, it wasn't intentional but Dolly Parton, Jim Reeves & Harry Belafonte are included.

There are some rarities on the show with a 1956 recording from Patrick Galvin, Dominic Behan & Harry Belafonte from 1959 & also some gems from the 60's, 70 & 80's. There is also a few newer songs from Peter Byrne (a fine young singer from Inchicore’s South Square) & Cork's own John Spillane. There is also a beautiful duet that features Mary Black & Liam Clancy.

The Dominic Behan song was written by Zozimus who was an Irish street entertainer, poet & singer, he died in 1846 & was from the Liberties.

So that's The Raggle Taggle Celtic Folk Show this Tuesday and Friday at 7pm and on Saturday at 8pm on www.totalcountry.radio.fm or via the TuneIn app on your mobile device.

All of this, and more, only on Total Country Inchicore, Country to The 'Core.
Pat Kiernan23/10/2018The Raggle Taggle Celtic Folk Show returns this week to Total Country Inchicore. It's the usual blend of Scottish, Irish & English Folk with "Marianne Faithfull" in there as well singing one of the first ever "Jagger / Richards" compositions, she was also probably the first well known"Rock Chick" & was Mick Jagger's girlfriend back in the 60's.

The highlight of the show is 2 songs from an album by "Dermot Henry" where his wife at the time "Cathie Ryan" duets with him, she only features on 2 of the tracks on this 1982 album which is a pity as she gives this LP an extra bite. She lives in America & for several years was a member of the all lady traditional & very talented group named "Cherish The Ladies". She is still very much active & has a very successful solo career.

The oldest track is from 1956 & is by "Mickey & Mary Carton" & a song titled "I'll Forgive And I'll Try To Forget".

A full track listing is available by e-mailing totalcountryfm@dublin.com

The Raggle Taggle Celtic Folk Show is broadcast on Tuesday and Friday at 7pm, and again at 8pm on Saturday and can be heard online at www.totalcountry.radio.fm, and on your phone via the TuneIn app. You can also play the show through her Sonos speakers or via your wifi radio.

Pat Kiernan05/11/2018It's that time of the week again where we remind you of the Raggle Taggle Celtic Folk Show on Inchicore and Kilmainham's very own radio station, Total Country Inchicore.

We have another mix bag of goodies in this week's show, starting out with "Ladysmith Black Mambazo" a choral group from South Africa.

They have been around since the early 60's & obviously the line up has changed over the years, they were always very popular in their own continent.

They sprung to international acclaim after they guested on Paul Simon's album Graceland where they sang on the track "Diamonds on the soles of her shoes".

Nelson Mandela was a big fan of the Mambazo's & It's interesting that his autobiography has the same title as one of their albums ""Long Walk To Freedom".

The other track that stands out is by the group Solas titled "Michael Conway" which tells the true story of Michael Conway who In 1910 left Mayo for the copper mines of Butte, Montana which was known as Shamrock City because of the influx of Irish immigrants.

At one time It had the highest percentage of Irish people in the whole of America, an interesting place!

The Raggle Taggle Celtic Folk Show presented by Inchicore native Finn Barr can be heard online and on your mobile device on Tuesday and Friday at 7pm and again next Saturday at 8pm. Check out http://www.totalcountry.radio.fm or seach Inchicore on TuneIn.
Pat Kiernan13/11/2018The Raggle Taggle Celtic Folk Show returns this week with some not seeing the light of day in years.

One such album is one by an Australian group called "The Aussie Bangers" from 1979. It's a fun album so 4 songs from that LP have been included.

There is some other interesting recordings too, a few tracks from Johnny Cash from the 50's & 60's & we finish out with a 1916 recording from John McCormack.

We also have 2 songs taken from an Album from 1963 titled "The Singing Nun" by Soeur Sourire who was a Belgium Nun in a French Convent.

Soeur Sourire (Sister Smile) became an international star who eventually left the order but was hounded by the Belgium for back taxes from her time as "The Singing Nun".

It is believed that a religious Order as well as her Record Company were the ones that profited from Soeur Sourire's recordings.

It ended sadly as she & her friend (it's unsure it their relationship was more than simple friendship) together committed a double suicide in 1985 citing financial worries!

Are you old enough to remember when "Dominque" was a massive hit not only in Europe but also in the US where she outsold the likes of Elvis, the Beatles & the Stones?

The Raggle Taggle Celtic Folk Show airs Tuesday and Friday at 7pm, and Saturday at 8pm on http://www.totalcountry.radio.fm or on TuneIn
Pat Kiernan19/11/2018The Raggle Taggle Celtic Folk Show returns to Total Country Inchicore this week with the usual mix of Irish & Scottish folk with a little bit of old American Country & bluegrass thrown into the mix.

There are 9 tracks from the 60's, with a live & rare recording from Paddy Clancy with Tommy Makem from 1965. The oldest track is from 1960 from The Galliards.
