Guessed Bodhran history??? (65* d) RE: Help: Bodhran history??? 08 Aug 02

Is This Evidence?

UK 'catters have the chance to hear a snippet on the Irish who populated Monserrat. Pete McCarthy tells about their musical soirees where they play a drum "related" to the Irish "boaron" (as he pronounces it). And the cultural links between Ireland and Monserrat must have been minimal in the last 200 years and certainly since 1926. It was broadcast at 0945 Thurs GMT+1. Is repeated 0030 Sat 10th (12:30am to you).
Programme is call "Book of the Week" and the book is "the Road to McCarthy" read by Pete McCarthy.
If I find it on the BBC World Service I will post here.
Failing that keen types can always read the book.

He is a "good listen"
