On BBC Radio 4 Extra. Originally broadcast on BBC Radio 4 in 2015

The true story of Abner Jay

Laura Barton pieces together the true story of Abner Jay, a most unusual musical talent.

Abner Jay was an itinerant musician – a modern-day minstrel. He was a one-man band, a songster, a storehouse of history and an off-colour raconteur; he was a direct line to a different era.

He said that his instruments were centuries old, passed down through his family. That his father and grandfather had been slaves. He claimed to have fathered 16 children, that daily doses of water from the Suwannee River kept him young and that he was 25 years younger than you think.

But you never know what to believe with Abner Jay.

What is certainly true is that he travelled the Southern states of the US with a converted mobile home which he opened out into a makeshift stage. And he was possibly the last performer of the 'bones' – a musical tradition that involved playing rhythms on cow and chicken bones dried in the sun.

The writer Laura Barton talks to those who knew him and those who love his music in an effort to dig beneath the myth and misdirection and reveal the true story of Abner Jay.

Drawing from the composer’s A London Symphony as a starting point, their collaboration explores a joint interest in urban folklore and Ralph Vaughan Williams’s connection to the capital where the three artists all live and work.

Originally broadcast in March this year and repeated last night on BBC Radio 4

Past Forward - A century of Sound


Greg Jenner hears a recording of the song Lord Rendall (sometimes known as Lord Randall) by Somerset folk singer Louie Hooper.

The recording was made in 1942 by the pioneering radio producer Douglas Cleverdon.

With his guests, the playwright Nell Leyshon and Tom Gray from the band Gomez, Greg explores the idea of musical ownership and how musicians are remunerated today.

Marking the centenary of the BBC, Past Forward uses a random date generator to alight somewhere in the BBC's vast archive over the past 100 years. Greg Jenner hears an archive clip for the first time at the top of the programme, and uses it as a starting point in a journey towards the present day. The archive captures a century of British life in a unique way - a history of ordinary people’s lives, as well as news of the great events. Greg uncovers connections through people, places and ideas that link the archive fragment to Britain in 2022, pulling in help from experts and those who remember the time, and looking at how far we've come since then.

Holst and Vaughan Williams: Making Music English BBC iplayer 27 days left to watch

Historian Amanda Vickery and broadcaster Tom Service unearth the fascinating story of the life-long friendship between composers Ralph Vaughan Williams and Gustav Holst, whose music gave birth to the 'English sound' in the first half of the 20th century. They retrace the walking trips the two composers took together across the country to discover how influences ranging from the Renaissance masters to folk music imbued their music with the 'Englishness' we recognise today. Illustrating the story, the BBC Concert Orchestra perform excerpts of both composers' music.

On BBC Radio 4 this morning and now available to listen to

Black Roots - Episode 1


Episode One – Frank Johnson, Joe Thompson and the fiddle in North Carolina.

Black Roots

String bands, hoedowns, square dances, old-time fiddle and banjo styles, these sounds were a dominant strand in African American roots music from the 17th century onwards. Despite this, many people think that such music comes solely from dungaree-wearing, white rural folk. Country might appear to be the whitest of all music genres, but it has some surprising roots.

How have these black roots been whitewashed from the history of American folk and country music? How have folk and country been positioned as white genres? What does black Americana sound like today?

In this episode, acclaimed musician Rhiannon Giddens returns to her home state of North Carolina to explore the lives of two black fiddlers - Joe Thompson and Frank Johnson. Johnson was one of the first black celebrities in the Southern states of the USA. Born into slavery, he bought freedom for himself and his family on the back of his profits as a musician. More than 2,000 people processed through Wilmington, North Carolina for his funeral in 1871. Though he died before the start of the recording industry, his music was passed down through generations of black fiddlers in the region. The last of these fiddlers was Joe Thompson, who taught Rhiannon countless songs.

Featuring Iris Thompson Chapman, Phil Jamison, John Jeremiah Sullivan and Dr. Lewin Manly.

Presented by Rhiannon Giddens
Produced by Tom Woolfenden

Women's Hour - Women and Folk Music

"This May bank holiday Emma looks at women and the tradition of folk music. You may have a stereotypical image of a woman in a floaty dress walking through a flower meadow - but we want to challenge that. From protest songs and feminist anthems - it's not all whimsy in the world of folk.

Emma talks to Peggy Seeger who has enjoyed six decades of success with her music. Peggy was married to the singer Ewen McColl. He wrote the song "The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face" for her. Together they revitalised the British Folk Scene during the 50s and 60s, working on the BBC Radio Ballads; ground-breaking documentaries - which wove a story from the words of real people working in the mining and fishing industry or building the M1 motorway with sound effects, and songs. Now 86 years old, Peggy's own songs have become anthems for feminists, anti-nuclear campaigners and those fighting for social justice.

Emma examines the uncomfortable elements of folk music, and how artists are finding ways of reinterpreting old songs, or writing new ones to represent missing narratives and stories. Who were the female tradition-bearers, writers and performers and the often forgotten collectors - those who would record and notate traditional songs handed down orally from generation to generation? And what is being done to improve the gender equality and diversity in folk music?"

It will be available to listen to shortly after broadcast.

2 episodes in total.


On The Road - Different Musical Directions

Maddy Prior and daughter Rose Kemp discuss their totally different musical journeys.

Maddy Prior has been the lead singer of Steeleye Span since they formed in 1969. Since then the band has had dozens of members, some have left for good, some have left and re-joined, Maddy herself, who is still with Steeleye, describes it as a 'bus' with people jumping on and off.

In the first of two programmes, Maddy and her daughter Rose Kemp discuss how music has taken them in different directions.

Whereas Maddy is at the very heart of the folk and traditional music establishment, Rose is a major artist in the doom and drone metal scene, the slower heavier take on heavy metal. Together Maddy and Rose discuss their music and how it was they have followed such different musical paths.

Specially for this series, Rose and Maddy have composed and recorded brand new, original songs alongside artists, especially selected by the other.

Rose has linked up with Bellowhead front man Jon Boden to record a song she has written to explore the difficult subject of rape in marriage while Maddy collaborated with Dylan Carlson, part of the Seattle music scene and head of the metal band Earth.

Long standing fans of Maddy's and Steeleye will definitely be surprised at the way she uses her famous voice to fit the guitars of Carlson's arrangement.

Along the way, Rose and Maddy come together to discuss the world of music, feminism and misogyny in the folk world, spirituality, and how they view the world and their relationship through their different musical styles.

The emphasis was, of course, on Scottish traditional music including Gaelic song.

I'm late to this but it's still available on listen again etc (the news at the beginning is 5mins if you want to skip):

Glad to hear there are other keen fans of Genevieve Tudor's show here, and I hope Reinhard has found access. My second favourite is the always unexpected Oota Da Cans, which is an hour a month from Shetland.

I see BBC Radio 2's new project 21st Century Folk, based in the north-east of England, hasn't been mentioned on this thread yet so here's a link:

https://www.bbc.com/mediacentre/2022/21st-century-folk

https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/articles/12DGLdmk0fbwjF8M9V04kwR/21st-century-folk

"Radio 2 is always looking for ways to tell stories, and 21st Century Folk is a creatively ambitious and hugely exciting new endeavour. Following in the tradition of the Radio Ballads, I’m proud that in the BBC’s centenary year we will be telling the real life stories of our listeners in the North East of England, using original music to create a lasting legacy of their experiences."

"BBC Radio 2, in partnership with BBC Local Radio, launches 21st Century Folk, an ambitious initiative to capture the essence of life in the North East of England in 2022 - the BBC’s centenary year – through the prism of folk songs, and offering people from the region the opportunity to have a song written about their life."

"Anyone (aged over 18 years) living in the North East of England is invited to get in touch, tell us about their day to day life – or an inspiring person they know – and share stories and anecdotes about doing the sorts of job that make the country tick in 2022, whether a teacher, nurse, delivery driver, junior football coach, scientist, coffee shop barista, student, shop worker or anything else that defines the UK in these shifting times. In March, five participants will be selected from all the submissions by a panel comprised of representatives from the 21st Century Folk team, Radio Newcastle, Radio Tees and a songwriter (to be announced closer to the time). Later in the Spring they will be paired with and meet the songwriters who’ll be creating the music from their stories. They and their songwriter will really get to know each other, with their meetings recorded and filmed for documentaries that will air on Radio 2 in the autumn."

After dillient research I have failed to find a connection between Biscuithead and the Biscuit Badgers, as featured by Genevieve, and Half Man Half Biscuit other than the twice-cooked commestible itself - Bicciepedia etc.

I remember driving down the M6 with the children in the back, listening to Radio Stoke on Trent to get the traffic news, and the 'disk jockey' kept referring to CDs - they were probably rather novel at that time - as biscuits. "Cracking biscuit that!" he'd enthuse after every track. It became a catchphrase in our house for a while.

I'm just lisening to this, as I do every week:
Genevieve Tudor's Sunday Folk - Available now (4)

Last week's (6/2/22) had many songs Norma Waterson and her family. This week (13/2/22) has lots of unusual stuff, including Ralph McTell with Wizz Jones, and Biscuit Head and the Biscuit Badgers*.

*What is it about biscuits? There used to be a band calked Half Man Half Biscuit."

Looking through the FAQ I see that geo-blocking in get_iplayer can be avoided by using lower bitrate streams
https://github.com/get-iplayer/get_iplayer/wiki/faq#nonuk
Not much good for TV but 96k radio should sound OK. You may be able to specify that in the BBC Sounds app itself.

Is that using the normal BBC website or Sounds app? Genevieve's is one of several BBC radio programmes I download automatically with get iplayer which may not be be so restrictive.

I love to listen to Genevieve's show too but for the last two weeks' programmes I'm getting the error message "This content is not available in your location" (which is Germany).
