featuring a session from JASON STEEL
presented by Dillon & Jason Steel
Yorkshire born Steel has forged a reputation as a distinctive solo performer. Marrying a lullaby-sweet voice to his deft finger picking (on 5 and 6 string banjo, guitar and ukulele), the results are striking; Jackson C Frank haunted by the spectres of 1920s ‘Tin Pan Alley’. By weaving the sounds of Appalachian and ragtime picking with the strange, old worlds of traditional folk, he evokes an emotional hinterland somewhere between Bert Jansch and Leonard Cohen, John Fahey and Cliff ‘Ukulele Ike’ Edwards.
Jason joins us this week to mark the reslease of this much anticipated second album The Weight of Care, for Rif Mountain
