As some of you may have picked up from our Facebook and Twitter pages Bob’s Folk Show – The Live Sessions is changing from a fortnightly to a weekly show on Folk Radio UK. (News will follow shortly about Mixtape Radio which will be given new slots).
The new episode The Live Sessions #3 will be broadcast tomorrow (Friday 5th October) at 8:00pm. Bob will be featuring some top sessions from Josienne Clarke and Ben Walker, Dylan Walshe and Galley Beggar! A few words from Bob on his selection:
Josienne Clarke and Ben Walker
Josienne Clarke and Ben Walker have been on my show many times and I have seen them play many times too and every time they blow me away Josienne is such a great singer and a fantastic song writer and Ben has to be one of the best strings men around at the moment, Whether they are playing trad or self penned songs they move my soul.
From the moment I heard Dylan Walshe’s demo CD A few years ago I was hooked I like his approach to life and music making and when I saw him play at The Clubhouse Records Christmas party last year it was his songs that I was singing in my head in the cab on the way home and that night there were some great acts playing.
Galley Beggar are my favourite modern Folk Rock band and that is that! Their new album is stunningly good.
