A quiet revolution of Irish folk music is stirring amongst young acoustic bands (like Lankum and Skipper's Alley) as well as from singer-songwriters (like Declan O'Rourke, Joshua Burnside and John Spillane) and singers of traditional ballads. On today's show, we highlight three such singers: Dublin's John Francis Flynn, County Armagh's Dani Larkin, and Santa Cruz transplant Amelia Baker. The latter (pictured here), trading under the name Cinder Well, has just released a stark and beautiful, pandemic-inspired album titled No Summer.
Also on today's show: new music from Sharon Shannon, JP Harris, Joe Danks, Logan Ledger, Jenny Reynolds, Bella White and Barbara Bergin. And classic tracks from The Incredible Band and Mike Beck.
