About The Blarney Pilgrims

The Blarney Pilgrims Podcast is a weekly journey to the heart of Irish music.

We use the word ‘heart’ intentionally, because heart is what this music, and the people who play it, are all about. Each episode we chat to a player about how they first came to the music and the place it occupies in their lives now.

It’s a funny, warm and often unexpected journey – and the tunes are crackin' too.

Hey there - it's Darren and Dom here. So...we want to let you know that last week was the last episode of the Blarney Pilgrims Podcast for now. We've come to a point where we've both decided to take a long pause and focus on a few other things. Knowing how much the podcast means to you all, it's a decision we've been really reluctant to take. What we DO know is how massively grateful we are for every text, every thumbs up, every raised eyebrow of support we've had over the past two years. You are all legends, and we're forever in your debt. Thanks especially to everyone who's become a Patron Saint and supported us through the toughest of economic times, and thanks most especially to the musicians. To those who have been so generous to share their tunes and stories with us, and to those who've welcomed us into pub sessions and festival gatherings and house sessions and campsite sessions. Wherever in the world we've chatted with players of the music, we've been made to feel like lifelong pals. It's a testament to the open heartedness of the communities who keep the music going wherever they are, and we can't thank you all enough. We hope this archive will remain of use to people even as we're taking a pause. So - please do stay in touch, don't be a stranger, and if you see us out and about, do say hello. And we'll see you when we see you. Dom and Darren.
