That's the name of my radopshow on :


is an Irish music programme on Radio Rijnwoude,

the local radiostation for Rijnwoude in the west

of The Netherlands.               

Wim van Gent is the presenter of the show:

"Every week I dedicate a few hours of my time to

Irish music by putting a new show together for

our listeners".

To Song from Ireland Irish music means: traditional

music, other folkmusic, singer songwriters,

contemporary music, folkrock but also jazz and

blues from Ireland. Sometimes there’s some

music from other gaelic/celtic areas in


We sometimes feature Dutch singers and musicians

who play Irish music in SONG FROM IRELAND.  

Irish music is quite popular in Holland.


Wim calls himself an Ireland-freak and tries to

spend some time in Ireland every year on a regular

basis. County Clare is his favourite part of Ireland.

There’s so much to experience there, from sessions

 in the Doolin pubs to roaming the wonderful Burren.

"I like the people, their history and tradition, their

everything…….and the wonderful scenery".

Wim has a sound knowledge of Irish culture, history

and musical tradition. as well as a good and growing

collection of Irish music CD’s.
