This weeks Bob’s Folk Show – The Lives Sessions is a special extended two hour edition in which his show is taken over by artists from FolkRoom Records: Lucy Cait, Sophie Jamieson, Patch and the Giant & Josienne Clarke and Ben Walker…over to Bob:
With some shame I have to admit I have not been to the Folkroom folk club yet! But I have been championing their record label since the day it started and it is going from strength to strength. They have some of the best acts on their books that have graced the radio shack that is the Radio Wey studio. So I invited them to take my two hour show over to play as much live music as they could, as this is very hard to do on a live radio show which usually plays records as well as having live acts I decided to just bring in one album to play I picked the new Sproatly Smith album as I’m a massive fan and it fits in well with the 1980’s sound effects album that I picked up on the way out of my house on the night!
I had many very pleasant surprises during th course of the show: I had never before seen Lucy Cait or Sophie Jamieson play live before and I was totally blown away by both of them. I since booked them to come on my show again later in the year.
Patch and the Giant have been on my show before with their full band, which seems to grow all the time (like a giant). What ever form they are in I love this band and to see Angie playing the trumpet and the accordion at the same time always make me smile from ear to ear. They are a band that may just go to the top this year.
Josienne Clarke and Ben Walker have been on my show loads of times and I am their number one fan, if you listen to my shows you will know that!
So enjoy this two hour Bob’s Folk Show Live Sessions Special Show.
