Brooklands Radio Mainly Folk August 2017

The first hour of the show is again given over to this year's Sidmouth Folk Week.
As usual our Americana section is in the 2nd hour and includes a great live session from Steve Mayone straight from the recent Maverick Festival.
Coope, Boyes & Simpson has revolutionised three part unaccompanied singing and now, sadly, are on their farewell tour. Fortunately this includes Sidmouth. We caught up with Lester Simpson just before the festival, who gave us an insight into the last phase of the trio and the exciting plans for what happens next.
In the 2nd hour we have a great live session from Steve Mayone, who is based in Brooklyn, New York. We played a track from his latest CD Sideways Rain in our last show and wondered how the excellent songs would stand up when played stripped down. Steve is supported by local player, Chris Robins, on bass, who we drafted into the studio at the last moment. The end result made for some great music !
Presenter: Bev Harris. Producer: Jim Guynan.
