The Irish-Appalachian Connection This Saturday

Nuala Kennedy & A.J. Roach

Join us for post-Thanksgiving music this holiday weekend!  Irish singer/flute player Nuala Kennedy and Appalachian roots musician A.J. Roach will be our special in-studio guests tomorrow (Saturday) at 3 pm on KALW's "Folk Music & Beyond."  While at first glance this may seem like an odd pairing, Nuala and A.J. have a lot in common.  The historical Ulster-Appalachian connection is at the heart of the music they make together.  The similarities between those traditions serve as a launching pad for their own musical vision.
