On the Stewart Fenwick Celtic Country programme this week, Stewart talks to Australian bluegrass performer Karen Lynne and will be playing tracks from her new gospel album “Shine Your Light”.

For this album, Karen travelled to Tennessee to record the album in Tom T Hall’s studio.

Karen says: “This was truly the best recording experience I have ever had and we are going to try our hardest to get back there in a few years and do it all again. Taking producer role this time was Jerry Salley who, even though he was snowed under with all the promotional stuff from his own new release, he still found time to fit me in. I have never seen a producer work so hard, he gave 300%, did whatever it took, stayed as late as he needed to.”

The Thomas Fraser Memorial Festival – special feature

The Thomas Fraser Memorial Festival – special feature

Nov 3, 2012

On this week’s Stewart Fenwick Country programme Stewart previews The Thomas Fraser Memorial festival in Shetland next week.

Thomas was a quiet unassuming Shetlander who recorded his versions of old Jimmie Rodgers and Hank Williams songs on a home reel-to-reel tape recorder.

These recordings didn’t come to light until 2002, some 25 years after his death.

Since then, The Thomas Fraser Story has been subject to a BBC television documentary and a National Theatre of Scotland stage show which has toured here in Scotland and in America.  Each November a festival is held to celebrate his work with artists coming from as far away as Nashville in his honour.

Stewart also marks the 50 years since Billboard dropped the “Western” from the “Country & Western” charts.  Email: stewart.fenwick@celticmusicradio.net
