Album of the Week at Celtic Music Radio -Laura Cortese and the Dance Cards – California Calling – Release 6 Oct

Album of the Week at Celtic Music Radio –Laura Cortese and the Dance Cards – California Calling – Release 6 Oct

Band Members -Laura Cortese / Valerie Thompson  / Valerie Thompson /Jenna Moynihan
‘Laura Cortese has a vision for her band’s sound: bold and elegant, schooled in the lyrical rituals of folk music and backed by grooves that alternately inspire Cajun two-stepping and rock-n-roll hip swagger. It’s appropriate then that the quartet, featuring Cortese, call themselves Laura Cortese & the Dance Cards.’

Barbara Dickson speaks with Gavin this Sunday

On Sunday 1 October at 6pm, Gavin Paterson’s special guest is Barbara Dickson.
Listen Again Links – First Hour  Second Hour

Barbara has two very good reasons to celebrate in 2017 – she marks her 50th anniversary as a professional musician and also turns 70 years of age. She isn’t slowing down though – far from it. She is out on the road right now, marking the release of a new double album recorded live with her great road band “In Good Company”.

In the show Barbara talk about her earliest musical life in the folk clubs of
Scotland and England, through to becoming actress of the year – twice – in
London’s West End. Collaborations with everyone from Archie Fisher to Andrew Lloyd Webber. And we play music from ever part of that career.


Tune in at 6pm on Sunday on Celtic Music Radio, or listen again on our “Catch up” site for 30 days after broadcast.
