This weeks Simple Folk Radio features the Handsome Family in session and Dillon is joined by Del Day (Songs from the Arc).

First broadcast 12th May: THE HANDSOME FAMILY

“In contemporary Americana, Brett and Rennie Sparks stand out as dissident pioneers. You can imagine the two of them at the back of a wagon train heading west: drunken fatalists, spotting ghosts and deer and ridiculing manifest destiny. For where others retrace well-trodden paths and humdrum traditions, The Handsome Family go offroad to hunt down phantoms, to update forgotten myths and ancient black jokes” – Uncut Magazine.
