Foolish Folkish Fun, this Week on Come by the Hills!

Yes, Mushroom Fm's premier Celtic music show, known as Come by the Hills in order to distinguish it from all the other Celtic music shows on the Home of the Fun Guys, is back for another week of great music and banter from yours truly, Sara Hillis. We've got all our usual features including a very special by-request installment of "Me Music" and an October-related "Celtic Cover." We'll even have a bit of folkish comedy for you to sample.

It's an encore presentation caused by illness tonight on The Early Years!

Happy Canadian Thanksgiving, Eh? This Week on Come by the Hills!

Yes, it is a long weekend here in Canada, a weekend on which we give thanks for the harvest and celebrate by eating a lot of food and having a lovely time with family and/or friends. I think that having an attitude of gratitude, as some self-help books put it, is very important all year round, but I'm reminded this weekend of how thankful I am for the ability to do this show. Mushroom Fm has allowed me to live a small dream that I've had, that of doing a show about the music I love most in the world, and for that I'm very grateful indeed.

Stretching the Boundaries, this Week on Come by the Hills!

come by the Hills is back for another week, and we've got some new music that will stretch the boundaries of the show's primary focus. It is described as a Celtic Music Show, but the Celts lived in so many places and traded and fought and dealt with so many different cultures during their rovings across Europe that there is likely no such thing as a purely Celtic kind of music.
