Subject: RE: BBC Radio4 - Morpurgo's Folk Journeys
The series is not restricted to traditional folk songs!

"With help from singers, songwriters and other passionate experts, Michael admires the indelible stories within classic songs that deal with migration, war, protest and love. Over the four themed episodes, Michael considers the locations and historical contexts that gave rise to much-loved traditional songs, and finds out how the same topics are inspiring new folk songs in the 2020s."

Next week, the BBC Radio 2 Folk Show falls on Armistice Day and Mark presents a special mix of songs about war and peace. This week/tonight it features Rachel Newton.
