The Folk Brothers Show Visits the Old and the New as Brother Peter Flies Solo this Week on Aug 19th, 2020

Music programs are only online for two weeks after they are broadcast.

This morning I flew solo, revisiting some 70's classics, as they were - John Martyn's "Spencer The Rover" - or as reimagined - Nick Drake's "Black Eyed Dog" as interpreted by Ben Harper and Rhiannon Giddens - or as retold - "On The Road To Find Out" by Yusef/Cat Stevens. And lots of new music by Bonny Light Horseman, Fay Hield, Caoimhin O Raghallaigh and Dan Trueman, Shirley Collins, Cinder Well, The Jayhawks, Dirk Powell and Rainy Eyes, as well as Mark Barnett and Sarah Jaroz. Fiddler Mike Barnett suffered a massive cerebral hemorage in late July. His friends and family have created a Go Fund Me campaign - "The Mike Barnett Recovery Fund" - to help defray costs for his recovery.
