Thread Name: Folk Music on US Radio
Subject: Folk Music on US Radio
I am helping, on a voluntary basis, to promote a live album from the highly influential Scottish band, The Clutha (my dad is one of the fiddle players). It is entitled ‘Live from Harvard’ and was recorded in 1981 in the US. Notably it features the late Gordeanna McCulloch singing at her very best, placing it up there with anything ever recorded in terms of vocal technique. I feel it it a very important album in the history of folk music, especially in the context of the Scottish folk revival, and that it deserves to be heard.
Can anyone suggest influential US radio stations and publications that might be receptive that I could send copies of the CD to? There is quite a daunting list with an internet search.
