Éabha McMahon did a phone interview on a show called "Irish Hit Parade" on WROL radio in Boston this morning.  I listened to it on wrolradio.com and managed to record most of it.  Here's the recording:

https://www.davidegrayson.com/keep/20190216_wrolradio_eabha.mp3

Key facts from the interview:

  • At the age of 15, Éabha Joined Anúna and toured with them singing in the Sean Nos style.
  • At the age of 24, Éabha got a call from Celtic Woman with an offer to join the group, and she was touring in Australia with them two weeks later.

(I was rushing to install Audacity and figure out its recording settings at the last minute so I missed recording the first minute or two of the interview.  The forum doesn't allow attachments larger than 2000 KB, so I'm hosting the recording on my own server.)

Hi, Glen.  I can't find any kind of archive for the show besides the recording I made and posted.  I think we didn't miss much: the host played Moorlough Shore from Ancient Land, then started talking to Éabha, brought up the topic of how she spoke Irish at home, and that was about it.

Audacity is free and open source, and will work fine for audio now that I figured out the setting to use.  For videos on the web, I'd recommend trying sites or software based on downloads instead of screen capturing, since that will probably let you get the video at its maximum resolution.

When she said they just recorded a new album, I half expected her to say something about what they were up to in the studio over the past few weeks.

The host did say "The Celtic Woman" a few times. I'm glad they pronounced her name right though.

I was thinking the exact same thing!

I enjoyed listening to this interview, especially with how both excited and emotional Eabha was talking about her experience with Celtic Woman. ❤
