Hissyfit on Radio 4

Hissyfit were on Woman's Hour on Radio 4 today. They sang Sweet Lovely Nancy from their new CD and Bound for South Australia which I have not heard them sing before. The radio item centred around the fact that the Hull Shanty Festival is being held this weekend at which Hissyfit will be singing. The radio item is not up on the BBC i player yet but here is a link which should take you there when it is http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b007qlvb/episodes/player

Well done Hissyfit. By far the best music slot I've heard on woman's hour this year.

Baby sitting grand daughter and played it on listen again, Eden was mesmerised by the singing lasses, she loved it, I think that is a result, 6 months old and such a discerning ear, oh, and i loved it too

Thanks guys! The Beeb were lovely and very supportive of the information we were trying to get across re the Shanty Festival. They deserve a pat on the back. Dame Jenni chatted with us afterwards and wanted to know if Barnsley Folk Club was still running! Over to you Padgett me boy!
