Togadh Evin Downey in Áth Cliath ach tá sé ina chónaí  i nGlaschú le níos mó ná 11 bliain anois, meallta anseo as a ghrá don bhia domhainfhriochta.
Tar éis do a dhéanamh  roinnt iarrachtaí  i Nua-Eabhrac & i Londain, thainig sé ar ais don Ghaeilge in Glaschú  trí ranganna ag Conradh na Gaeilge Glaschú (an áit ina oibríonn sé anois mar Oifigeach Forbartha) agus ag cúrsaí samhraidh ag Oideas Gael i nGaeltacht Dhún na nGall.
Beidh béim ina sheó, Cluas Oscailte, ar amhráin i Gaeilge , de gach saghas, ach fósta beidh le cloisteáil ceol ó áit ar bith agus de chineál ar bith.
Agus táthar ag súil go mbeidh aoi nó beirt sa stiúideo ó am go ham fa choinne ceol beo !!
Is é aidhm an seó na go mbeidh sé taitneamhach do dhuine ar bith  cíbe leibhéal Gaeilge atá acu.
Evin Downey is from Dublin but now living in Glasgow for more than 11 years, enticed here by a love of deep-fried foods.
After some aborted attempts in New York & London, since moving to Glasgow he has reconnected with Irish through classes at Conradh na Gaeilge Glaschú (where he now works as a Development Officer) and summer courses at Oideas Gael in the Donegal Gaeltacht.
His show,  Cluas Oscailte (An Open Ear), will have an emphasis on Irish language songs of all genres but also feature music from anywhere and of any type.
And hopefully there’ll also be the odd  guest in studio for a bit of live music !!
This is a show that aims to be enjoyable to those with any level of Irish, or none.

When I retired I worked for Inverclyde Radio. I joined Celtic Music Radio about two and a half years ago and have loved doing my Wednesday “Jukebox” since then.

Fiona McNeill is certainly no stranger to Celtic and folk madness, being the guitarist and front woman in folk rock band Reely Jiggered since 2011. So, of course, it is only natural that she offers a completely fresh and unique take on the Celtic/folk genre. Fiona celebrated seven years of Celtic & Folk Fusions in […]

Sandy Semeonoff worked for BBC Scotland for many years as a music librarian.  He has produced country, folk, and world music programmes for BBC Radio Scotland. He grew up in a house full of classical 78s and LPs, but his passion for seeking out new and exciting styles of traditional music really began when he heard Finbar Furey playing the Irish uillean pipes in Edinburgh folk clubs in the 1960s. Sandy is also a performer and for several years could be found singing and playing the Cajun music of SW Louisiana in Glasgow pubs. Sandy presents and produces an eclectic choice of international, mainly acoustic music in his monthly Planet Waves programme on the last Tuesday of the month from 6.00-8.00pm.

Hamish Burgess’ weekly show based in Maui, Hawaii, plays 2 hours of the best Celtic music from around the planet. Hamish travels to many countries interviewing musicians for the program and often has interview clips with the top traditional Celtic musicians and folk singers, such as the late Liam Clancy, George Millar of The Irish Rovers, Paddy Moloney, Carlos Nunez, and many more.

Whilst David was at school he learned to play Irish traditional music at his local branch of Comhaltas Ceoltóirí Éireann and he once qualified for the all-Ireland Fleadh in the penny whistle! He has presented many different types of shows across different genres over the years, but it was only when he made the move to Celtic Music Radio that he came up with the idea of Sounds Irish.

Occasional presenter, but primarily responsible for all the "behind-the-scenes" gubbins that keeps Celtic Music Radio on air, and gets our great music from our presenters and studios to your ears.

Ross has been with Celtic Music Radio since 2008.

His own musical tastes are eclectic, ranging from Mozart to Motorhead and all in between.
