About the show
The whole of the first hour of this month's programme is given over to the forthcoming Sidmouth Folk Week.
We play tracks from some of the great artists playing there this year and have a special feature on The Changing Room
whose Tanya Brittain who will be playing with Sam Kelly and their extended lineup on the Tuesday. Tanya is originally from Sheffield but has lived in Looe, Cornwall for ten years, providing an excellent backdrop and source of inspiration for her songwriting. You can hear just how good these songs are and how well she and Sam perform them when we play tracks from their recent album "Picking Up The Pieces".
In the 2nd hour we have our Americana section as usual and to finish off the show we have a real treat !
Zak Hobbs is a very talented songwriter, singer and guitarist. He also teaches guitar with his grandfather, Richard Thompson, at the latter's annual guitar camp in the States. You will be able to hear why when you listen to tonight's great live session.
