  • Series 14 Programme 3

    This week, Liam presents A Kist o Chunes with a special programme featuring part of a concert put on by the Ulster-Scots Experience in Ballymoney Town Hall.

    John Trotter welcomes the audience and introduces the music including: ‘Open the door’; a selection from the works of Robert Burns (‘Kenmuir's on up and awa'; ‘Green grow the rashes-oh’; ‘Scots wha hae’); a bothy ballad called ‘The barnyards of Dalgaty’; a Gaelic air called ‘Cutting bracken’; and the audience join in with ‘I’ll tell me Ma’.

    13 year old All-Ireland Champion piper, Neil Badger from Magherafelt, puts in a welcome appearance; before the music continues with a Scottish courting song called ‘Let him go, let him tarry, let him sink or let him swim’. A very fine five-row accordion player, Kenny Mitchell, plays ‘Oh gin I were a baron’s heir’; and then we hear a selection with ‘The thistle of Scotland’ and ‘The star of Robbie Burns’.
