Playing tracks by
Theme music/Intro, Spiers & Boden, Craig Fortnam, Stephen Fretwell, Green Diesel and more.
Superb duo Spiers & Boden open each half of this week's program from their magnificent mostly trad album "Fallow Ground" - glorious! English S/S Craig Fortnam follows on from his superb fourth solo album "Ark" with classical & Nick Drake influences in evidence; & Brighton, UK based S/S Stephen Fretwell closes sets 1&3 from his brilliant "Busy Guy" which also shares some Nick Drake influences behind his dexterous guitar playing & style vocals.
Faversham, Kent-based Green Diesel open sets 2&4 from their excellent folk-rock album "After Comes The Dark" recalling Steeleye, Trees & of course Fairport stylistically, but very much their own creature; excellent Scots S/S Hector Shaw follows from his impressive 5 track EP "Gravity"; fellow Scotsman Jack Badcock closes set 2 with his single "Only A Lifetime"; & Ottawa Valley, Ontario Canada fiddler, stepdancer, S/S Kelli Trottier closes with her lovely rendering of "Snowbird". Enjoy!
