We've got a good one up here in Northern Ireland called 'Blas Ceoil' BBC 2 Northern Ireland.

On that you get a real mix of Trad, Folk, Singer/Songwriter etc etc.

In fact I was on it just last week. The show was from Fermanagh & this time it was very trad.

You can see the format for yourself in these two video clips.

Ciarán Kelly, Ciarán Curran, and Dick Glasgow play Joe Ryan's Waltz/ Jimí Bhidí Mhicís Waltz for Blas Ceoil series 3.
