BBC Radio 2 Folk Show 21:00 Wednesday/BBC Sounds

22 days left to listen Acoustic sounds, with Georgia Ruth in session
Welsh singer, songwriter and harpist Georgia Ruth joins Mark live in Salford to perform songs from her new album, Cool Head. Plus the usual blend of exciting new releases and classic tracks.

29 days to listen Rooting around The Folk Show with Mark Radcliffe
This week includes news about the return of Radio 2's 21st Century Folk, in which five people inspire five new songs. We hear highlights from last year's project. New releases come from The Decemberists, Good Habits and Altan. Mark also checks out new books with musical connections to Johnny Flynn and Christine Collister, and plays a Scottish classic by Silly Wizard.

04 August 2024 The Folk Show with Mark Radcliffe 21st Century Folk

In 21st Century Folk, five people inspire five new folk songs. This year, the project focuses on coastal life and sea rescues around the UK. The five fascinating characters get to meet songwriters, who listen to their stories before going away to write a dedicated song. Later, they're reunited for the song's debut performance. In this programme, Radio 2's Mark Radcliffe hears the in-depth stories behind each song. This year's 21st Century Folk musicians are: Lady Nade with Boo Hewerdine, Cara Dillon with Sam Lakeman, Martyn Joseph, Kris Drever, and Seth Lakeman with Fisherman's Friends. Their subjects are Anna, Jeff, Vicky, Emma and Al. Lifeboat helm Anna Heslop became Cullercoats’ first female helm in the RNLI station’s 170-year history, and also led their first all-female crew. She inspires a song by Bristol singer Lady Nade and fellow songwriter Boo Hewerdine.

Kayaker, yachtsman and former soldier Jeff Allen leads expeditions around the world. He turned to the sea to help him cope with life after the army. The veteran's story inspires a song by Northern Irish singer Cara Dillon and her musical partner Sam Lakeman. Vicky Murphy was eight months pregnant when she and husband Marc were rescued from a flooding cave in Cornwall. Hammered by waves that threatened to drag them out to sea, the couple believed they would not survive. Thanks to a mystery surfer and two lifeguards, they did. Their story inspires a song by Cardiff troubadour Martyn Joseph, who returns to 21st Century Folk for a second time.

Marine conservationist Emma Neave-Webb lives on the island of Sanday in Orkney, where she works to rescue beached whales affected by changing seas. Her profound change of lifestyle, and experience of rescuing killer whales and pilot whales, inspire a song by Scottish songwriter Kris Drever, whose own family comes from Sanday. Central London lifeboat crew member Al Kassim volunteers at the UK’s busiest RNLI station: Tower. He signed up after being saved by a lifeboat off Portsmouth. Al's song pays tribute to all brave volunteers and is performed by Dartmoor folk star Seth Lakeman and Cornish shanty sensations Fisherman's Friends. Videos of the five performances from 21st Century Folk can be found on the BBC iPlayer and the BBC Music YouTube channel.

BBC Radio 2 Jeremy Vine show 12-2pm Monday 29th July to Friday 2nd August 2024. Interviews with all the participants can be heard on Jeremy Vine's Radio 2 show.

Broadcast on BBC Radio 4 Extra on Tuesday 11.6.24 (originally broadcast on BBC Radio 4 in 2016)

Suck it and See

"Grammy Award-Winning songwriter Amy Wadge fell in love with the harmonica after winning one in a fancy dress competition (she was dressed in a bin liner!).

Here she investigates the history and potential of the diatonic instrument, a European the toy which in the hands of expert players became the the iconic sound of the Mississippi Delta and the Chicago Blues.

According to music historian Christoph Wagner, the very first example of the instrument goes back to Vienna. But millions would soon find their way to the USA, taken there by German emigres fleeing poverty. The poor person's introduction to music, the harmonica would soon find its way to around the globe, from Britain to Australia and even China.

But it was in America that it scored its biggest success. Joe Filisko reveals it was there that harmonica technique underwent a transformation. Instead of exhaling air, blues players would draw air in, and bend notes to achieve the characteristic sounds of the blues.

Amy tries her hand at bending, under the expert tutelage of Steve Lockwood - one of very few people to have studied the harmonica to degree level, and she speaks to one of Britain's best-known players, Paul Jones.

Canadian beat-boxer Benjamin Darvill - "Son of Dave" - has explored new possibilities with the instrument, and with an original sound that's been heard in edgy TV dramas and commercials.

Proving that for all its limitations - 10 holes and 3 octaves - there's life yet the harmonica.

Produced by Geoff Ballinger."

Dirty Old Town will be given a new lease of life by American singer Peggy Seeger, who married MacColl in 1977, when she reveals a new verse in a one-off performance at Salford’s We Invented the Weekend festival in June. Peggy Seeger, an accomplished performer and songwriter in her own right, said she was delighted to be revisiting a song "Ewan and I sang together for decades" at the Salford festival.

A new orchestral version of the song, created by Seeger with her son Neill MacColl and the BBC Philharmonic documentary, will feature in a documentary which has been made by the festival in collaboration with BBC Archive on 4. The film, which is presented by BBC Radio Manchester presenter and fellow Salford musician Mike Sweeney, will be broadcast on 6 July.

Dirty Old Town will be a focus of the upcoming We Invented The Weekend Festival at Salford Quays on 15 and 16 June. The song was written 75 years ago and depicts human life and love in industrial Salford. It was famously recorded by The Pogues, The Dubliners and many more. Also this week, Mark highlights the 110th anniversary of James Joyce's classic book Dubliners, which famously gave the Irish band their name and inspired many more folk musicians since then.

The only bit of singing is in the last half minute but it's good to hear Stanley Robertson being interviewed in 1988.

Walking the Old Lumphanan Road with the Late Stanley Robertson - 2024
Scotland Outdoors
Stanley Robertson was from the Travelling People and in the 1980's he published a book called 'Exodus to Alford' featuring stories associated with a particular road his people used to take each Summer when he was a boy. Former BBC Producer Doreen Wood went there with Stanley in 1988 and recorded an interview with him describing his memories of this special place.

In this podcast, Mark Stephen and Helen Needham go in search of the Old Lumphanan Road with the archive of Stanley in their ears, offering a fascinating insight into the culture and beliefs of him and his people and a way of life that no longer exists in this part of the world.

The Golden Age of the MGM Musical - 2024
Sunday Feature
,,,Freed's music Unit employed the top musicians of the time - Conrad Salinger, Erich Wolfgang Korngold and Kurt Weill - many of whom had fled war-torn Europe and rising anti-Semitism.
From the early days of sound, MGM became synonymous with the spectacular, technicolour musical - the first studio to integrate music, plot and dance in film in an intelligent way. Over the years, with huge successes like Meet Me In St Louis, The Wizard of Oz and Singin' in the Rain, they became the 'Faberge Egg' of movie production. And these hits often coincided with moments of huge social and political turbulence, offering audiences fantasy and escape from the Great Depression, war and prejudice.
With archive and original interviews including Alicia Mayer - grand-niece of Louis B, film music historian Jon Burlingame and conductor John Wilson, Neil Brand explores this extraordinary period in film history.

06 April 2024 13.03 Music Fit for a King and a Nation
Richard Morrison explores the sumptuous showcase of British music at King Charles III's coronation in May last year, in a post-pandemic climate faced with financial challenges.

13 April 2024 13.03 Grass Roots and Folk Revivals
Richard Morrison delves into the unique character of British music, from the folk-infused music of Vaughan Williams to Samuel Coleridge-Taylor's Hiawatha and music today. He explores the role of the folk-music revival of composers like Vaughan Williams, Holst and Delius in strengthening Britain's musical culture after an apparent dearth of compositional activity after Purcell, and explores our national musical identity today, both classical and folk.

Richard talks to some of the main players on the British music scene today, including Nicola Benedetti, Martyn Brabbins, Evelyn Glennie, Darren Henley, Gavin Higgins, Sam Lee, James MacMillan, Stephen Maddock, Kadiatu Kanneh-Mason, Gillian Moore, Chi-chi Nwanoku, David Pickard and Judith Weir.

Sunday 23 March 2024 BBC Radio 3

16:00 Music Planet Lopa Kothari presents a recording of Colombia's Meridian Brothers, live at Kings Place in London, as part of the Songlines Encounters festival.

Hailing from Bogota the Meridian Brother's music is an uncategorizable mix of Latin rhythms and genres, taking in Cumbia, Salsa and Currulao and spinning it all through a psychedelic prism. Lopa heads backstage and talks to Eblis Álvarez, the man behind the music, to find out more about the roots of the Meridian Brother's unique sound.

17:00 J to Z Jazz Kerouac Jumoké Fashola marks the centenary of jazz poet and 'King of the Beats' Jack Kerouac with a musical journey through his landmark novel On the Road and later works of poetry.

From Billie Holiday to Charlie Parker and Lionel Hampton to Slim Gaillard, Kerouac had a magical way of bringing the records, the clubs and the performances he witnessed to life, while incorporating the rhythms, the freedom and the energy of jazz into his writing. Travelling back to the 1950s, Jumoké plays music by the artists who inspired and enthralled him, unearthing some of Kerouac’s own collaborations with jazz musicians as well as tributes from the greats.

I've never been a fan of Martin Hayes & his attempts at 'fusion' music, but maybe that's me? I just happened to hear him speaking on Radio 3 'Music Matters' as listed above.
He had some very shrewd comments about folk music and I'd agree with most of what he said- worth a listen!

Desert Island Discs - Val Wilmer

"Val Wilmer has photographed and interviewed many of the most significant musicians of the post-war years, including Duke Ellington, Muddy Waters, Miles Davis, Jimi Hendrix, Bob Dylan, Aretha Franklin and many more.

Val grew up in Streatham in South London, where a local record shop helped to nurture her love of music, especially jazz. Her lifelong passion for jazz and photography began at an early age: when she was just 14 years old, she persuaded her mother to take her to London Airport to see off the jazz legend Louis Armstrong who had been playing in the UK. She asked him for an autograph, then took a picture of him as he broke into a huge smile. The image was the first of many classic shots.

Alongside her work as a photographer, Val has written extensively about music, as a journalist for numerous publications and as an author: her book As Serious As Your Life, examining the evolution of free jazz within the wider context of racial and sexual politics, has been widely acclaimed as a classic text.

In 1983 she co-founded Format, the first all-female photographic agency, which aimed to champion women photographers and to widen the range of images available to newspapers and magazines.

Her photographs are held in the collections of the V&A and the National Portrait Gallery."
