A thoroughly enjoyable online folk radio show - and I’m not saying that just because I’m on it. FC, Nick Drake, Eliza Carthy, John Martyn, Jon Boden and a cast of hitherto (to me) unknown talents that I’ll definitely be investigating further. Lots of music, very little blather. https://www.mixcloud.com/ianfreedman18/the-readifolk-radio-show/

I do too. Was listening to Turn and the Hard & The Easy the other day while flying back from Toronto.  Check out some of Alan Doyle's post GBS albums. Not quite the same, but the energy is still there. Sean McCann has a few solo works too but I have never really shined  towards his solo work to be honest.

Me too.

XX is a nice retrospective but it could have done with a few more Sean McCann songs though. Having said that, there's not much I would want to take off so maybe a third was needed!

I was lucky enough to see them in concert, back in the Nineties, upstairs in a pub in South London. It felt like they'd crammed the entire population of Newfoundland into the room! One of the most memorable concerts of my life thus far.

Alan Doyle is making some fine solo work. The most recent album, A Week In The Warehouse, from 2017, is outstanding.

Sean seems to be a troubled man, sadly. He albums are well written and played but like you, I'm finding them hard to love

Well put. I'm happy he has found a path through his pain, but it just seems 'off' to me personally.  He also seemed unnecessarily contentious with his ex-bandmates awhile back and it left a bad taste in my mouth. I have seen on Twitter though that things seem a little friendlier between them of late though.

That's good to know. I'd heard things had become frosty.

While I still don't expect a Great Big Sea reunion any time soon, it's nice to think that fences are being mended.

Harvey Andrews masterpiece Writer Of Songs on vinyl bought from a charity shop today for a pound only blemished by a signature across the sleeve in blue Biro.  Contributions from DM, Peggy, Danny Thompson, Ralph, Cozy Powell and Rick Wakeman.

Also bought Margarita and PG signed as well ... works I'm not familiar with.

Such a shame they never played Croppers - they'd have been brilliant. I saw them as a support band...knew none of their stuff...hadn't even heard of them, and they blew me away. I just bought Up ( I now have three albums with that title..you know what they are) last week, so they have been on my mind lately too.

Gosh I used to have that- cube label. Saw HA live once in the 90s. An oft overlooked songwriter, I think.

When I had my book shop in Sedbergh about 15 years ago, he came in and had a chat (he was playing a gig in Kirkby Stephen I think).  Absolutely delightful man, and he signed my copy and we had a chat about all his rock star mates.  Sadly retired now, I believe....but well earned.  I hope he's well.

I don't know if it was on here but I watched a clip on you tube where Harvey Discussed singing a song on a movie soundtrack. I have a Harvey Andrews album somewhere with Richard Thompson on it I think it was song from a corner seat or something like that. I also was at a acoustic night and the other singer (yes there were only two of us there) sang marguerita

Incidentally - why/how did Harvey never play Cropredy (or did he)?

The excellent Acoustic Tearoom no doubt. I think he still does a few charity gigs.

Great venue.  The other thing about Harvey's Writer of Songs album...how is it possible that the person on the cover is in their 20's?!

At the much missed Rockingham Arms at Wentworth in the early days of mobile phones mid-introduction to a song mine went off silently in my pocket, he heard it and went off on one about all things modern. After he'd finished I felt like one of founding Fathers of capitalism.

Are you one of the founding fathers of capitalism, if so I have a few questions....

Robbie Robertson's self-titled solo album.  Bought this when it came out, and don't listen to it that often these days.  But every time I do, I wonder why not.
