Due to holidays etc. this weeks Simple Folk Radio show will feature a re-run of the show which featured the Handsome Family in session on which Dillon is joined by Del Day (Songs from the Arc).
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.
