Brooklands Radio Mainly Folk November 2020

Playing tracks by

Martin Simpson and Kris Drever.

This month we talk to two leading performers who have managed to produce brilliant new albums despite today's challenging circumstances.
Martin Simpson was planning to take a short break from constant touring to concentrate on writing and playing. Unfortunately he, like all other live performers has had to come off the road for a lot longer than he intended. The plus side is that he has produced “Home Recordings” a thoroughly engaging and intimate new album. We talk to Martin about the stories behind its making and play a selection of its dazzling performances.
Although largely confined to his home Kris Drever has managed with the wonders of technology to work with some of his “golden” musician friends such as Siobhan Miller, Ian Carr and Euan Burton to produce an excellent album of new compositions “Where the Air is Thin.”
The songs and arrangements are multi layered and to our mind is Kris' best work to date.
We finish with Hector Gilchrist's "The Song And The Story".
