Boo Hewerdine – ‘Swimming in Mercury’ – Album of The Week 13th May 2017

Boo Hewerdine  – ‘Swimming in Mercury’ – (Reveal Records April 28th 2017) – Album of The Week at Celtic Music Radio

 

 

Boo Hewerdine’s new album “Swimming in Mercury” (Reveal Records April 28th 2017) gives us a personal insight as he takes us on that journey back in time. It’s a trip furnished with a glisten and a glint in his eye as he applies style and shapes to his autobiographical memories. Hewerdine revisits and recreates music in a manner that, put simply, a band starting out just couldn’t afford. In his own words “The new album was recorded in the spirit of the first four track recording I ever did… but instead of a chunky cassette deck we were able to use Chris Pepper’s Cambridge studio. It was an incredibly enjoyable and creative way to work. Often I would write a song in the morning and by the end of the day we would have another track done”.
His mantra “All I ever wanted was my name in the brackets. And it gave me this life” gives us yet another album without! brackets !

Award winning singer songwriter, Boo Hewerdine with classic hits such as ‘Patience of Angels’ also producer with numerous musicians. Boo’s first foray into the music scene was back in 1983 with The ‘Great Divide’, then in 1985 went on to form ‘The Bible’ with Tony Shepherd  only leaving in 1990 to undertake his solo career.  From branching out on his ‘own’ Boo heralded many other collaborations with Eddi Reader/ Finlay Napier  / Chris Difford / with Brook Wiliams in State of The Union /Sia / K.D.Lang/ Kris Dreaver/ Duke Special / David McAlmont  to mention but a few brings a stunning new album

Jane Kramer Biography

Lauded by UK music reviewer Three Chords and the Truth as sounding like she was “…born to gypsy poets and raised by Emmylou Harris,” Asheville, North Carolina-based songstress Jane Kramer has garnered international recognition for the sultry, heartrending originality of her vocals and for the heavy-hitting lyrical eloquence of her songwriting. With deep roots in the traditional music of her beloved Appalachia, Kramer’s songs are introspective and gritty. They sweep listeners down the gravel roads and  southern coastal highways, midnight truck stops and lonely motel rooms of  “hard learning” and lead home to the Blue Ridge Mountains with moving  acceptance of our flawed human experience.

Following the February 2016 release of her second solo studio album  Carnival of Hopes, Kramer has been touring nationally and internationally.

Her live performances are interactive, moving and memorable, both when Kramer is backed by her full band featuring the virtuostic  strumentalists  that comprise Asheville’s Free Planet Radio, Lyndsay Pruett of the Jon Stickley Trio and Billy Cardine of Acoustic Syndicate, as well as when she

is solo, wielding just a guitar and her unforgettable songs.

Quoted as “…an artist on the rise” by acclaimed American songwriter Mary Gauthier, Jane Kramer has performed with such well-known artists as Amy  Ray of the Indigo Girls, Appalachian troubadour Malcolm Holcombe, two- time Grammy award-winning bassist Eliot Wadopian, Joan Osborne and  Leyla McCalla.

 

See you there ! Eva

Skipinnish – ‘The Seventh Wave’ Album of the Week 6th May 2017

Skipinnish – The Seventh Wave – released 28  April 2017 Label Skipinnish Records
Band Members – Angus MacPhail  / Andrew Stevenson / Alasdair Murray /Norrie MacIver / Jonathan Gillespie / Rory Grindlay

 

 

 

‘This, the seventh album, from Skipinnish, epitomises that theme perfectly.  With Norrie MacIver’s distinct vocal taking on the lead and with a few other transfers and additions, this is the band’s biggest and boldest production yet.  The changes in line-up mean three renewed Skipinnish classics joining five new self-penned songs, a tribute to Runrig, three rocketing tune sets and a haunting slow air.

 The Seventh Wave comes as the band’s own wave of popularity continues its powerful rise. With four consecutive chart topping single releases and sell-out shows across the country, Skipinnish have rocketed to the top of the trad music scene and their ascent is accelerating.  Their latest single, ‘Alive’,  which is the first track on the album, hit Number 26 in the mainstream UK download charts, which for a traditional band is a mighty achievement. Only Runrig and Capercaillie having been higher.

 It was said that water taken from the seventh wave had properties of healing and invigoration.  It is predicted that this music will have a similar effect on those who ride the waves of life listening to Skipinnish.’

Lankum studio Guest of Gavin Paterson 2nd May 2017 2-4pm

Lankum are a four-piece traditional folk group from Dublin, Ireland, who combine distinctive four-part vocal harmonies with arrangements of uilleann pipes, concertina, Russian accordion, fiddle and guitar. Their repertoire spans humorous Dublin music-hall ditties and street-songs, classic ballads from the Traveller tradition, traditional Irish and American dance tunes, and their own original material.
Listen Again for next 20 days :- First Hour Second Hour

 

‘Having spent the last number of years performing as ‘Lynched’, the band decided that they would no longer continue with the name due to the unavoidable implications that it has in regards to acts of racist violence. Their new name comes from the ballad ‘False Lankum’, as sung by the Irish Traveller John Reilly Jr.The band was originally formed as an experimental-psychedelic- folk-punk-duo by brothers Ian and Daragh Lynch in the early 2,000’s, and has since progressed through a number of incarnations.’

‘As their interest in traditional music and song grew, the brothers began to attend sessions around Dublin, where they formed friendships with Cormac Mac Diarmada and Radie Peat, amongst a whole host of impressive young musicians. When Ian began work in the Irish Traditional Music Archive, after completing a folklore masters, he had the rare opportunity to record in the ITMA studio with friend, colleague and in-house technician Danny Diamond, whenever a spare evening presented itself, so he and Daragh asked Cormac and Ra die to provide some backing vocals and instrumentation on “one or two songs”.’

After some preliminary practice sessions it became obvious to all involved that something much more interesting was happening, and the group quickly became a dedicated four-piece, gaining experience and confidence as they played together at the Grand Folk Club gigs, which they hosted monthly. They also applied around this time for the Arts Council’s 2013 Deis Recording Award, for which they were fortuitously approved.

‘Cold Old Fire’ was recorded by Danny in ITMA in August of 2013, and although fundamentally an album of traditional Irish song, heavily influenced by Irish legends such as Frank Harte, Planxty and The Dubliners, subtle traces of the group’s collective influences can be detected, from American old-timey music, ambient techno and psychedelic folk, to black metal, punk and rock n’ roll.

The album was released in May of 2014 and has since seen them appear on Later with Jools Holland and playing some of the world’s most renowned music festivals, including CambridgeSidmouth,  Edmontonand Electric Picnic as well as being nominated for three awards at the 2016 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards and featured on covers of notable music magazines such as fRoots and The Thin Air.

They have a number of gigs and festivals already booked around Ireland, the UK, Europe and North Africa for the coming year, as they continue working under the name Lankum.
