For the September edition of the Limerick Lady podcast, Emma Langford and Ann Blake met with Úna Molloy, founder of Turning Pirate, one of Ireland’s brightest lights in the music industry, someone not many get to see and hear because so much of her work happens behind the scenes.
Usually up the walls organising tours for Lisa Hannigan, Wallis Bird and Paul Noonan among many others, Úna joined Emma and Ann in this strange lull to chat about the confusion and frustration surrounding the COVID-19 live music guidelines, and about the current push for better balance and parity in terms of gender on TV and radio.
