Founder members of the legendary urban blues outfit So Long Angel, Fran McGillivray and Mike Burke have spent many years honing their craft: early live appearances included playing in the backing bands for touring US artists Inez Foxx and JJ Barnes.
Since then they have performed at many major festivals in Europe and in the UK and with artists such as Bert Jansch, John Renbourne and Davy Graham.
Their trio is completed by Roger Nunn and together they have recorded four albums together; the latest, entitled “Midnight Call” will be released in January 2017.
Fran and Mike’s own vibrant and original songs are complemented by soulful, dynamic and powerful interpretations of songs from a broad range of genres from Americana through to Country and Blues.
In this hour special Fran and Mike chat to Pete Feenstra about their music with tracks from 'Midnight Call'.
