Just in case people who'd like to don't know

The First Family of English Folk: a celebration of the Waterson Family, who come from Hull. Part of Radio 3's Uproot festival for Hull 2017.

Live from Hull Truck Theatre. Introduced by Kathryn Tickell

The Waterson Family:
Norma Waterson, Ann Waterson, Eleanor Waterson, Marry Waterson, Erin Anderson, Davoc Brady, Lauren McCormick, Emily Portman and Jim Causley (singers)
Martin Carthy (singer, guitar)
Eliza Carthy (singer, violin)

8.15 pm: INTERVAL - a profile of refugee musicians in Hull

8.15 pm Part Two
The Gift Band:
Norma Waterson (vocals)
Martin Carthy (guitar, banjo, vocals)
Eliza Carthy (Vocals, Violin)
David Donnelly (double bass, vocals)
David Delarre (guitar, mandolin, vocals)
Phil Alexander (piano, accordion, vocals)
Neil McColl (electric guitar, banjo, vocals)
Kate St John (oboe, piano accordion, vocals)

As part of the BBC's contribution to Hull UK City of Culture 2017, Radio 3 presents 'Uproot', a 3-day festival celebrating the area's folk and roots heritage as well as its international cultural connections. There are four concerts at Hull Truck Theatre from major world and folk artists, including Hull's folk royalty The Waterson Family, Eliza Cathy's innovative Arms Wide Orchestra, special appearances from Yorkshire folk artists Fay Hield and Martin Simpson, plus concerts celebrating Hull's international links from the Warsaw Village Band and Sierra Leone's Refugee All Stars. The theme is reflected widely in other programming across the three days. The theme 'Uproot' is essentially a reflection on roots, how people relate to them in fast-changing times, and what happens when people are displaced from their roots.

The Watersons were leading figures in the English folk revival in the 1960s and 70s, celebrated for their unique song repertoire and distinctive vocal harmonies. With Martin Carthy joining the family in the 1970s, and new generations of family musicians coming through, they have been a reference-point for English folk for fifty years. In this special concert for Hull City of Culture 2017, they return to their home town, with a first half that celebrates the traditions of the Watersons' vocal harmonies, and a second half with The Gift Band, fronted by Norma Waterson, the only remaining member of the original 1960s line-up, with her daughter Eliza Carthy.

Enjoying the concert

I'd also add there are several other programmes this weekend from Hull - including World on 3 tonight (Eliza Carthy & Arms Wide Orchestra / Olivia Chaney) and the fabulous Warsaw Village Band on Saturday at 1pm - one of my very favourite bands and well worth a listen!

If I were the Waterson Family I would ask the BBC for a refund of the money I was paying them.

It has come up on my computor screen that every song sung by them was being sung by THE DOC. WATSON FAMILY.

Check it out.

Too negative, Guest. I couldn't listen properly last night but I caught two songs when I was in the shower. One was about not craving a costly headstone when I'm dead and the other was about telling my friends that I'm dead and gone. Blimey, thought I! However, Bright Phoebus was damn good (I was out and towelling by then). I need to catch up to restore a sense of balance! That kind of singing isn't really my thing but I wouldn't be without For Pence And Spicy Ale.

I agree completely, there is most of what English folk is all about in that performance. I have Fay Hield's performance this afternoon currently on my PC - very nice indeed with a slightly different line up of musicians.

Just to balance the anonymous crit, I thought they were wonderful! I enjoyed all of it, even the more arty stuff.

I would probably agree with you Steve - but then we are probably biased.

Judy usually saves stuff for me to listen to later or in the car.

While having dinner this evening Judy and I were listening to Niamh Parsons.

Why is she not overwhelmed with work and never mentioned when they are handing out phoney gongs?

That's the media I suppose -and don't get me started on that!

Thought I'd posted my thanks but it must have got lost in the ether.
Thanks, Guest Ed, for the alert. Just listening to it now - wonderful stuff from the Watersons, Waterson/Carthy families who never fail to move me with the pure joy of their music.

When it comes to what we like everybody is biased. In a country like ours 'phony gongs' are the norm I'm afraid, particularly where the media are involved.

Depends how you define achievement Bonzo.

I am not envious at all.

But I could be a leftie.
