Playing tracks by
Paul Kelly and Uncle Bill, Paul Kelly & the Stormwater Boys, Paul Kelly, This Way North, Sarah Mary Chadwick and more.
I've been on a roots-music kick of late so I thought I'd play one track apiece from the two albums that Paul Kelly put out with blue-grass backing bands - Paul Kelly and Uncle Bill - 'Smoke' (2000) and Paul Kelly and the Stormwater Boys - 'Stolen Apples' (2007). Both albums were well-received by Paul Kelly fans and root-music lovers alike. I follow that with a track from Paul Kelly's latest album Seven Sonnets and a Song (2016), which remarkably Paul putting music to the sonnets of Williams Shakespeare, to celebrate the 400th anniversary of the passing of the great bard.
Our special guest this week is singer-songwriter Sam Tudor, who is based in the Cariboo in BC, after time spent in Vancouver. I ran into Sam at the Arts Wells music festival and was pleased to discover he was wearing a CiTR radio sweater! Sam speaks about his community radio roots and describes how he got into songwriting an record making with the help of an influential school teacher.
