Kids Commute - Irish Week!

We found your pot of gold at the end of the rainbow - it’s Irish Week on Kids Commute - your source for music appreciation for kids from Interlochen Public Radio! St. Patrick’s Day is Tuesday, March 17, and the Kids Commute team thought it would be fun to put together a week full of Irish music. We’ll hear traditional Irish melodies; music from John Field, the inventor of the nocturne; and a bit of modern Irish music. Make sure to listen for the hint for this week’s Kids Commute Quizlet. We’ll send you a Kids Commute Prize Pack if you text us the correct answer. Thanks for listening to Kids Commute from Interlochen Public Radio!

KC 3123 - IRISH WEEK! Thursday: Today, we'll hear an eerie Irish Air - and learn what makes an Irish Air so unusual-sounding! Our piece is the ancient Irish melody "She Moved Through the Fair" sung by Loreena McKennitt.
KC 3124 - IRISH WEEK! Friday: Today, we'll hear Bill Whelan's high-stepping "Riverdance" as performed by the Boston Pops, conducted by Keith Lockhart.
