About this Episode

Finding a set of Uileann Pipes in Yackandandah, VIC; getting your eyes gouged and goolies grabbed in the south of France; winning at the Fleadh when you're eleven; lilting, teaching your children to play at a young age. And getting to know and love Australia.

A beautiful, thoughtful conversation with the incomparable Jody Moran. Recorded at the Koroit School of Celtic Music and Dance.

Jody plays these tunes:

Sliabh Galgua (Air)

Two reels: The Little Beggarman and The Pigeon on the Gate

Tabhair Dom Do Lámh (Give Me Your Hand)

Eleanor Plunkett

The Road to Lisdoonvarna and The Gatehouse Maid

And finally...

The Hip-Op Jig
