Playing tracks by
Martin Simpson, Dom Flemons and Nancy Kerr, James Fagan.
This month's show is a Sidmouth Folk Week Special, the longstanding Festival that takes place the first week of August each year.
In the first hour it's Press Officer, Steve Hunt tells us what to expect this year. This beautiful seaside town hosts an amazing range of events. Steve gives us a flavour of these and we play tracks from a selection of acts you can see there. We also look at the programme for children.
This is followed by an interview with the excellent Jacob and Drinkwater, one of the up and coming acts who will be playing at Sidmouth this year.
The 2nd hour starts with our Americana section. This is followed by a recording made last year with the legendary song writer Alan Bell recorded at 2018's Sidmouth. Alan sadly passed away recently. You will be able to hear the fire and passion which informed his songs right into his 83rd year.
Hector Gilchrist plays one of Alan songs and we finish off the show with his regular 'Story and Song' featuring the 'Stone of Scone'.
