Lunasa disturb the sleeping Geoff McArthur, Martin Hayes bewitches him, and hey presto - Geoff falls in love with Irish music. We also talk songwriting, teaching and mentoring young musicians at the Lake School of Celtic Music, Song and Dance in Koroit. And he sings a song and makes us cry. Can't ask for more than that.

In this episode Geoff plays:
If There Weren't Any Women In The World (barn dance)
The Peacock's Feather (hornpipe)
Sparkle and Shine (song)
The Wise Maid (reel)
Free Trade Hill (song)
The Cornerhouse (reel)
