'Roots Freeway' returns to RTE Radio One, 3 Dec. 2016

Niall Toner reports today on his blog:

I'm delighted to say that 'Roots Freeway' returns to RTE Radio One on this coming Saturday, December the 3rd, for another thirteen-week run. If you're not already a listener, tune in at 11.00 p.m. on Saturday night to hear a great selection of roots music, including many new releases that you will not hear anywhere else. Artists like No Crows from Sligo; Shane Hennessy, a great young acoustic guitarist from Carlow; the Stargazers from Cork; Pete Cummins from Dublin; as well as tracks from Seth Lakeman, Hot Club Of Cowtown, Brendan Quinn, and more. Also, if there's stuff that you'd like to hear on the 'Roots Freeway', or if you have a new release, you can get in touch with us at rootsfreeway@rte.ie/.

The general philosophy behind the show is to bring you as much of the kinds of music and song that you will not hear elsewhere, with a strong emphasis on home-grown Irish singers and songwriters, as well as a wide variety of blues, bluegrass and old-time music, and a list of up-coming live gigs around the country. Roots Freeway: 11.00 p.m. on Saturday nights, on RTE Radio One with Niall Toner.
