Studio Guest- Rachel Harrington – Sun 14 th Oct 12-2pm on Celtic Country with Stewart Fenwick
On this week’s Celtic Country, Stewart Fenwick talks with singer songwriter Rachel Harrington, who was in Fife and Dunoon this week as part of a UK tour.
Rachel was performing material from her widely lauded back catalogue, interspersed with selections from her new covers set I Wish I Was In Austin, and previewing songs from her much anticipated Hush The Wild Horses album, which Rachel is currently working on and is due for release in 2019.
I Wish I Was in Austin, features covers by some of her favourite songwriters. An homage of sorts, it’s a solo acoustic album that harkens back to her debut demo from 2004. That debut, Halloween Leaves, garnered the young Harrington a good deal of praise for her unique interpretations of tunes from the Americana canon. The new covers album has tracks written by Steve Earle, Randy Travis, Willie Nelson, The Judds, Guy Clark, Townes Van Zandt, Lyle Lovett, and Neil Young, among others. “I wanted an album that took me back in time to where I started. Where I was just a girl in love with a guitar and in search of the perfect song.” A girl in love with a guitar. Is there any better place to start?
Hear several tracks from I Wish Is Was In Austin this Sunday 12 Noon-2pm,
Rachel has one further Scottish date coming up, at Montrose Folk Club this Thursday 18th October.
