Tim Eriksen very kindly agreed for Folk Radio UK to record his session at this year’s Sidmouth Folk Festival. The whole session was pretty magical and despite being a big fan of Tim this was my first time seeing him live so there was a double treat in store with his storytelling in between songs. I’ve chosen two songs from his set, both of which feature on his album Josh Billings Voyage or, Cosmopolite on the Cotton Road. I’ve intentionally kept in one of his tales on the second track Gabriel’s Trumpet, an uplifting song that had every one singing along including Martin Carthy and Norma Waterson who were also sat in the audience. So today you get two ‘Songs of the day’ as I couldn’t choose between them!
Every Day is Three
