Simon Emmerson’s ‘Weirdy Birdy’ Mix. Corncrake Studios, West Dorset. 11/10/10

Playing tracks by

Tales From The River Bank, Great Northern Divers, The Spell, Blue Tit, Yellowhammer, Corn Bunting and a Partridge, Coastal Road and more.

A great mix from Simon Emmerson of The Imagined Village, an exclusive for Folk Radio UK:

In his own words:

This a strictly deep Dorset mix from the Lush record label and The Sound Approach bird-recording collective. The twilight call of Great Northern Divers or the dry song of a Yellowhammer encourages the listener to walk away from the maddening crowd and join Swifts, Swallows and Cranes returning home along coastal paths, past childhood oaks and dream time Sky Larks. The mix rows you out from the smugglers village of Moon fleet and Chesil Beech as you drift west pass Start Point and Slapton Sands until you let go reaching out to cross oceans and time lines.
