So was the whole decade. I've got gig photos back in the 70s when I was playing in a McFairport clone and we've enough hair - and seriously bad hair at that - to stuff all the cushions in John Lewis.

OK then - but they're definitely rated 18.

So where's Folk Caledonia then?


Another year to wait, I reckon. Next up in the Britannia series? Check this out.

Classic Britannia? mmmm what is radio three for again?  

Soul Britannia? - great Trevor Nelson gives us the same interviews and quotes and anecdotes as last year, don't get me wrong I'm a big fan of JazzieB, but not another programme going over the same old ground surely?

Radio 3 is also for playing some of the best in trad/roots/experimental acoustic call it what you like. Late Junction - the best music programme on radio bar none.

Ummm - had a look, can't find anything, but remember lots of letters in the Broadsheets when changes were announced to Radio 3 programming a few months back - October I think..  Which could well mean I imagined the whole thing of course.  If so, I'll be delighted...one of the best things on the radio!

I thought they just moved it to later in the night, rather than ending it. But I could be wrong..

....so, Late Late Junction then?

It would be awful to lose it - quite the most consistently stimulating radio prog on any station.  And the Blessed Verity does so much to advance the cause of acoustic music, we can't afford for her to lose that platform either.

Did anyone manage to get a recording of Folk Hibernia on tape or dvd? I only caught the last half of the last repeat. Cry

Good news, yes I did record Folk Hibernia.
Bad news: on a TiVo, and I currently have no way of transcribing it.
Maybe it will come round again.

Off to Marie's wedding? Roll Eyes

That's Mairi's wedding - gaelic.  Let's have none of this effete semi-French nonsense please.  And you a fellow-Celt too, Shirl! Tut tut.


Ah, "Mairi's Wedding" is one of the solo songs that I'm going to do in my singing class this fall.  The piano accompaniment looks terrifying (not that I actually read music).  I hope I can manage to hold the tune & tempo through all that noodling behind me! (Singing to accompaniment is a huge challenge for me, neophyte that I am.  I usually look for a piano line that exactly doubles the vocal melody, so I have a crutch to lean on.)

But, back on topic: Are these BBC 4 programmes, Folk Britannia and Folk Hibernia available on DVD for those of us across the pond?  I'd be interested to see them, to further my "remedial folk" education.

Hmmm.... Johnny Moynihan ... one of Anne Brigg's former lovers!  I actually bought a Sweeney's Men compilation CD on the strength of that connection.  Quite good, but I think the Pogues comparisons are a bit of a stretch, musically.

Cheers, Hester

Thanks for the replies everybody. I contacted BBC Four; not much help there, I'm afraid. I suppose it's a case of keeping an eye on the schedules, Regards, SW
