On this week’s show, an exclusive interview with English folk (and beyond) legend FRANKIE ARMSTRONG. Frankie, with guests, is in town to promote her current CD of Brecht songs, ‘What’s She Got To Smile At?’ See the flyer below for details.
The pre-recorded chat includes tales of Ewan MacColl, Bert Lloyd and Brecht all the way to a couple of upcoming new collaborations. The folk process in non-folk songs. Music as medicine. The recent Gold Medal from the English Folk Dance and Song Society. Still enjoying singing as much as when she started in 1957. And more.
