I look forward to this point every week to hear who is next appearing on Bob’s Folk Show – The Live Sessions, and this week Bob pulls out his trump card in the form of Marina Florance (pictured above with Bob). I saw her perform at the London Folk and Roots Festival that Bob put on…she’s incredible, the video below is from the festival! Following Marina are the mighty Brighton band The Galleons and some great blues from Laine!
Bob Meyer on this weeks show:
Why Marina Florance is not a house hold name I will never know! But time will tell and the way she keeps winning awards and playing
on radio shows up and down the country, I hope that time will be very soon.
I had such I good night the night Marina came on my show (for the second time) and her company, like her music, is hones,t down to earth and a pure joy to be around. I look forward to Marina recording another album and hope the next one is just her and her guitar as that is what she does best.
The Galleons are from Brighton where there is a great acoustic roots and folk scene going on and they are one of my favourite bands to come out of the south coast in years.
Only three of the band could make this session but you will hear in Ben and Beth’s tight harmonies what a great band they are and they will be back on my Radio Wey show on Jan 13 for a bigger session so you will hear the whole band very soon.
Laine plays acoustic blues and I would say he is one of the best in the UK and that is that!
