But first tonight…The Black Keys. Glasgow Academy….I’m going!
If you haven’t seen them live then you should check out the Facebook page where there’s a link to their performance on Later. They are also on tomorrow night and quite wonderful they are too. Elvis Costello also features on Later. Not over convinced by this record – but it’s only my job to deliver you the goods. I am only too aware you can quickly let me know if you like what we’re playing!
The main part of the show is given over to our live session and interview with Eilen Jewel. Eilen and her band are from Boston but are playing tribute to one of Country Music’s greatest female singer-songwriters, Loretta Lynn on this rather fine record..
Please don’t tell me you have forgotten about our Another Country Movie Club? If so, we’ll remind you…
We’ll play some music from the film and nudge you to watch it before we rap things up next week. Just in case you don’t know – it’s Martin Scorcese’s brilliant documentary about Bob Dylan which constantly flicks back to the electric tour with The Band in the UK in 1966.
Also………??? Dolly and Porter, Mavis Staples, The Blind Boys of Alabama, The Carolina Chocolate Drops….and we’ll talk about that other Bob gig.
Mr Plant was in Edinburgh just last week.
Hear it all live on Friday Evening at 8. BBC Radio Scotland FM
Did anyone see this? If not I highly recommend it.
We talk to the lone Scotsman, David Dalglish who went from running a busy restaurant in Glasgow to experiencing meditative silence in North Wales.
We will also talk to Christopher Jamison, the man who encouraged the group to undertake “The Big Silence.”
We will meet Amy Hardie who’s had a rather disturbing year after a few disturbed nights sleep. A Halloween tale if ever there was one. Amy’s beautiful film is called The Edge of Dreaming. But I’ll warn you, it’s also quite disturbing.
And we’ll also chat about how these two characters are getting on rather well….
All from 8 on Sunday morning. BBC Radio Scotland.
