Peter Tilbrook and Delta (2015)

The show of Feb 12 2015 featured a number of surprise guests.  PETER TILBROOK (ex Masters Apprentices etc) had come along earlier in the evening to drop off a copy of his newly released solo CD ‘Living In The Sixties’ and needed little persuasion to come onto the show for a chat about it and its associated Adelaide Fringe show of the same name.   When the time came, he brought along respected Adelaide hip-hop legend DELTA – the link being that Delta samples Peter’s song A Madman Roams Tonight on his ‘Pyramid Schemes’ CD and the two have been friends ever since.

So the question was how to fit high profile figures in disparate genres onto a folk/roots show – which proved to be not very difficult when you focus on the many similarities between it all.     As the following interview in three parts should explain…!
