As the evenings draw in you can cheer yourselves up with one of our highlights from this Summer's Sidmouth Festival. The Brothers Gillespie played there for the first time, they are a fine duo from Wall in Northumberland. Their harmonies have that special quality which is unique to siblings. You can hear their story illustrated by tracks from their album “ The Fell” in the first hour.
Two family members also feature in our interview feature in the Americana section in the 2nd hour. Husband and wife Annie and Rod Capps have been playing professionally for over 30 years. Their latest album ' When They Fall' is the perfect culmination of their well honed skills both in terms of composition and musicianship. We love it and think you will too when Annie takes us through a selection of their latest songs.
In our regular feature 'The Song and the Story ' Hector Gilchrist is as informative as ever with his retelling of the 'Menzies Tree'.
