Radio Kidnappers Ceilidh, no. 336 - Playlist

Broadcasting on Sunday at 3pm local time, and repeated on Monday a week later at 9pm. Folk on Sunday is a weekly programme of music from near and far, land and sea, past and present, town and country, with special emphasis on traditional folk songs that tell a story: ballads, shanties, blues, gospel, bluegrass, and contemporary songs of the British Isles, USA, Canada, Australia and New Zealand, in English and Gaelic.

Broadcasting from midnight NZ time on Saturday night. On Kidnappers Ceilidh we play instrumental music from the dance traditions of those countries (and of Europe too): jigs, reels, strathspeys, flings, polkas, mazurkas, square dances, and so on - traditional and newly-composed tunes that continue to extend and develop the traditional forms. Radio Kidnappers (NZ) 1431kHz AM. Broadcast: 13/09/2015 0000-0100 NZST. Tune in at midnight Saturday, NZ time. Or click here for STREAMING on
