On this weeks Simple Folk Radio Daniel Green of Laish is at the helm and will be featuring a live session from Richard Dawson.
“The virtual antithesis of twee, Richard Dawson’s gruff, unassuming nature has played a huge role in enriching the five defiantly lo-fi records he’s mustered to date, and profits to an even greater extent in his live renditions. With a new album, The Glass Trunk, due in April, tonight’s set list was very much a mixture of old and new – each category consisting of his own compositions alongside the old Northumberland folk songs he takes so much joy in digging up. It was, in fact, one of the fresh numbers which hit hardest; the slightly disturbing traditional number “Poor Old Horse” soaring in a surreal a cappella guise, its character only enhanced by the bum notes and voice breaks which littered its performance. Eclectic, perversely hilarious and fabulously imperfect, evenings with Richard Dawson are among the best the North East scene currently has to offer, and I for one can’t wait until his next appearance” –Muzik Discovery
