FolkCast 119 - June 2016

FolkCast: the podcast that brings you the worlds of folk, folk-rock, singer-songwriter and roots music.

The Story Behind The Song turns 100 with the remarkable tale of "the man they couldn't hang', who inspired an entire album by Fairport Convention. But what happened to John "Babbacombe" Lee after he escaped from the hangman's noose? Also in this edition we chat to multi-talented musician Ken Nicol, and hear about how he has become a "guitar-slinger for hire", helping to rescue two bands' touring plans. Plus the usual diet of great new music!

FolkCast is produced and presented by Folkie Phil Widdows
