Traditional Irish Music
The interest in the definitive McKenna story is approaching fever pitch.......Following our 'standing room' only first launch in Drumkeeran town last Saturday night, the interest in the project has taken on a life of its own. Our website www.johnmckenna.ie went live on Monday last at 7pm and copies of the The Music and Life of John McKenna; 'The Buck From The Mountain' have been flying out of the online shop ever since.
We are getting 10-15mins live airtime on the John Murray Show on RTE Radio 1 on Wednesday morning next 18-June-2014 between 9am and 10am with the sole purpose of spreading the John McKenna gospel to John Murray's 323,000 listeners in Ireland and around the world on the internet........click on to this link on Wednesday next and then click the 'Listen Live' window....... http://www.rte.ie/radio1/
