Folk Music with Charlie McGettigan
A stalwart of the Irish folk scene since the 1960s, Charlie has enjoyed success as a solo artist, a collaborator, and a songwriter. His most recent album, Tuesdays with Paul, was released in March of this year – others include In Your Old Room, Family Matters, The Man From 20, and Stolen Moments, produced in Nashville by legendary producer Bil Vorndick.
Charlie has collaborated with artists such as Maura O’Connell and Eleanor Shanley, who have both recorded many of his songs, including ‘Feet of a Dancer,’ ‘A Bed for the Night’ and ‘If Anything Happened to You.’ Other artists who have recorded Charlie’s songs include De Danann, Mary and Frances Black, Ray Lynam, Daniel O’Donnell, Sandy Kelly and Hal Ketchum. Charlie joined forces with Paul Harrington and Brendan Graham to win the 1994 Eurovision Song Contest for Ireland with ‘Rock’n’Roll Kids.’
As well as touring extensively in Ireland and abroad, Charlie presents arts show The Saturday Connection on Shannonside/Northern Sound Radio, and serves on the boards of IMRO and the Dock Arts Centre in Carrick on Shannon.
