It’s another great mix of music in the pick & mix Show this week and hope there is another batch of new listeners ready to sample the great artists that I have seen lately.
We start off in Shetland with the Auld Fiddler – is that the track or the artist, maybe both then it’s farewell to Coleraine with Damien O’Kane. The tour takes in French Canadian Andre Brunet, the vibrant six piece HEISK before heading off to Australia for the lovely All our Exes Live in Texas
Remembering the Northern Soul era of Wigan Casino as we slither with Al Wilson …hiss before another great Something Old Something new feature.
There are some words from the Bible book of Ecclesiastes even before a great Gospel Spot and as usual an opportunity to dance !
My trip to the Southern Fried – it’s a festival not an eating establishment – gives us a feast of artists to enjoy with perhaps a well known name or two. Who enjoys Gretchen Peters or Iris De Ment.
America is represented by Hillfolk Noir from Idaho, a trio of neo-traditionalists playing traditional music on traditional instruments … real foot tapping stuff and the beautiful voices of Libby Koch and Rachel Levin who I enjoyed meeting again.
Duncan Chisholm takes us to a Precious Place but of course we are there already on Uplift Radio.
So tune in first time on Saturday or catch the encore repeat shows and as usual I welcome your requests on e-mail or phone in. Give me some themes for the special spots. You keep Picking and I’ll keep Mixing.
