Irish Traditional Music in the Heart of the Appalachian Mountains

Sigean on WETS-FM’s Studio One with Dave Carter

Saturday, March 15th, Sigean had the pleasure of playing live on WETS-FM’s (89.5) Studio One with host Dave Carter. The band played new and old favorites and talked with Dave about Irish music in the region. We owe a special thanks to Maelee, Clemmie & Morgana for the pics!
