Playing tracks by
Bix Beiderbecke & his Gang, Jimmy Witherspoon, Jake Bugg, Bascom Lamar Lunsford, Robin Laing and more.
Today I take you on a five nations tour as I play songs by artists from England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland and the Irish Republic. Featured album of the week is the debut album by 18 year old Jake Bugg which entered the UK album charts last week at number one. Bugg says "I guess it proves my point – people still want to hear guitar music. It’s my job to keep that X Factor shit off the top of the charts." Good luck to him. The English folk singer Emily Levy does a great rendition of a very moving Ewan MacColl song. And I throw in some old time jazz, blues and country music for good measure.
