About this Episode

Growing up in Luton, meeting Francis Droney, the anatomy of the concertina, English Folk music, and many many thoughts on identity, home and what "being Irish" means.

Ciaran is currently working on a solo album with Aifric Boylan, Kate Burke and Graeme Newell and as soon as we hear news about it we'll let you know. We can't wait!

Thanks for such an insightful chat Ciaran. It was a real pleasure.

(Apologies the mics were running a little hot during the tunes)
