Journey of Discovery returned to our schedule a few weeks back. The shows in this year’s series are inspired by the annual Country to Country Festival that took place over three days in London, Dublin and Glasgow. The festival takes place in March each year and this year’s dates were the 10th, 11th and 12th.
The diversity within country music now is palpable and exciting. Host Linda Conway brings you a flavour of some of the artists who took to both the main stages and the smaller stages at Country to Country. Each show includes music, news and press conferences featuring new and established artists.
Journey of Discovery is a specialised music programme dedicated to independent artitsts to showcase their talents, skills, songs and the music that inspires them to keep going and get into songwriting in the first place. It first aired here on Claremorris Community Radio in November 2013 . Show host Linda Conway loves music: singing it, playing it, going to see live music. She even says “if music was a man I would marry him!”
If you want to get in touch with Linda, please feel free to contact her on firstname.lastname@example.org.
The show is broadcast on Mondays at 3pm and repeated on Fridays at 11am. You can also listen back to this series of Journey of Discovery, all episodes are currently available on our mixcloud site: www.mixcloud.com/claremorrisfm/.
