About the show

Playing tracks by

John Spillane Louis De Paor, Tim Dennehy, Sarah, Seamus Heaney And Liam O'flynn, Catriona Mckay & Chris Stout and more.

Weaving the Land is the first in a series of new mixes from Folk Radio UK. The mixes explore traditional music and its connection to the land. Whether it is recalling memories of it or the longing for return to the homeland.

The first one features many great artists that can be heard on Folk Radio UK including Irish poet Seamus Heaney.

Birch tree, smooth and blessed,
delicious to the breeze,
high twigs plait and crown it,
the queen of trees.

extract from 'Sweeney in Flight' by Seamus Heaney (1983)

Two tracks are from that album, beautiful album and Seamus Heaney's poetry is rich like the peat soil his father dug.
