Formed in 2006 “The Wakes are a Folk’n’Roll band from Glasgow, Scotland. Their ambition is to make music with a social conscience. Music that matters. Their songs are songs, born from political and social struggle, of protest and of heartache and of the joys of life. Their fusion of traditional instrumentation, with a contemporary sound have helped the band to generate live shows which are energetic, euphoric, and often unforgettable.
The musical style of The Wakes is influenced by those who have gone before. There are influences of Guthrie, Springsteen and Dylan dripping from every sonnet. From traditional folk groups like The Dubliners and The Corries to contemporary bands such as The Clash and The Pogues comes the Folk’n’Roll sound”
Band Members / Paul  Sheridan – Vocals – Guitar / Chris Cruickshank – Bass- flute – saxophone / Danny  McGuinness – Whistle / Eamonn Maguire – Drums  / Connor Markey – Mandolin & Banjo/ Christopher James – Harmonica

Matt McGinn  – “On The Road From Aldermaston” Album of The Week 18th March 2017

Matt McGinn  – “On The Road From Aldermaston” Album of The Week 18th March 2017

Mar 18, 2017

 

Album of the week  –  Matt McGinn “On The Road From Aldermaston” Complete Transatlantic Recordings (1966-1969)

Listen in from 2pm on Sunday 19th March, we celebrate Matt McGinn with a programme featuring exclusive interveiws and rare tracks.

 

 

 

“Although he died forty years ago, the reputation of Matt McGinn endures and even expands. Having left behind a dazzling legacy of more than five hundred songs, the life’s work of the man dubbed ‘Scotland’s Woody Guthrie  by Tom Paxton’ was commemorated in 2004 with a concert that was staged in New York on Broadway, where Pete Seeger suggested that ‘…if there’s a human race here in hundreds of years, people alive then will still be singing his songs ‘. One of the key figures of the folk revival in Scotland, McGinn was a prodigiously talented singer/songwriter who moved effortlessly between ribald humour, topical novelties, good-natured parodies, children’s verse, tender love songs and heavily politicised protest material. This 2CD anthology represents his four-year spell in the late Sixties with leading folk label Transatlantic, for whom he recorded a quartet of albums that contain many of his best-loved and most enduring songs  ‘ including ‘Coorie Doon’ and ‘Three Nights And A Sunday’, both of which would be included alongside the likes of Woody Guthrie, Leadbelly and Bob Dylan in the Smithsonian’s Top One Hundred Folk Songs of the 20th Century. This 2-CD, offers Matt McGinn’s entire output for the legendary Transatlantic Records for the first time. Taken from the original master tapes, many of the tracks have never been released on CD before”.
