WOMADelaide / Steeleye Span review

The full program for WOMADelaide 2014 has been announced and unsurprisingly, it’s another good one!  Personal favourites HANGGAI are making a quick return visit, along with BILLY BRAGG, FEMI KUTI, THE BALENESCU QUARTET, JEFF LANG and a few Adelaide acts including recent visitor to the show LOREN KATE!  No doubt, there will be plenty of previously undiscovered acts that turn out to be highlights as well; it’s a WOMAD thing.

On a separate matter, the STEELEYE SPAN / TERRY PRATCHETT album ‘Wintersmith’ has been receiving plenty of R&Bs airplay.  For more details, see my review of the CD at http://sleepinghedgehog.com/music/steeleye-span-and-terry-pratchett-wintersmith/   The album is a definite highlight for 2013.  Here is a video of the band on tour in the UK, joined by Jon Boden, John Spiers and Morris dancers, performing the Dark Morris tune and song.  Recorded December 9 2013.
