Music From The Glen
Sunday May 26th, 2013 with Colin Henein

The plan was to head over the pond to England this morning (after hearing from a few Canadian artists to start things off) to hear tunes and songs "collected" from the CD shops the last time I was there. As the show evolved, live, we wound up with a mini-feature on protest songs. Thanks to Chris White for calling in to let us know what is going on with Gil's Hootenanny, an annual forum for protest songs and songs of hope that may be about to launch a competition to write new protest songs relevant to today's issues. Also, turns out I have a lot to say about a great concert celebrating the twenty-first and tenth year anniversaries in music of Eliza Carthy and Jim Moray. So, all in all, a great morning I really enjoyed talking about, and listening to, traditional music on community radio.

Good morning all, hope you enjoy the show this morning, including some of the tunes that have come home in my suitcase from London over the last few trips.
