NEWS: Eric Roche - Radio Documentary Monday 2 February 10pm

A radio documentary on Eric Roche, titled "With These Hands" will be broadcast by the Documentary on One, RTE Radio 1 (Irish National Broadcaster), Sunday, 1 February at 7.00pm and then repeated on Monday, 2 February at 10.00pm.

This radio documentary, 'With These Hands', is based around Eric Roche's early life, discoverying his love of music and the guitar, but particularly his relationship he had with his brother Bryan.

It is told, not only by the words and thoughts of Bryan, but also by the myriad of recordings that Eric left behind. Eric recorded 3 albums and countless live gigs, kept an online diary through his illness and nearing his death, with Bryan's help, he recorded parables for his children to pass on his teachings on life. 'With These Hands' combines all these elements along with the, now priceless, recordings that Byran had made, both of and with, his big brother Eric as they grew up in 1970/80's Tralee.

What emerges is a combined story, about a young man from Kerry who went on to become a virtuosic world class fingerstyle guitarist, whilst his younger brother Bryan - who through Eric's terminal cancer - got to know his big brother in a way he could never have known. 'With these Hands' is a story of love, music, life and brotherhood.
