BILL ADAIR INTERVIEW
WHERE CAN A MINER GO
This is a fantastic song by the very talented Scottish folk singer, Bill Adair. The song is very real for me, as I grew up in a mining family during the early 1970s. My father Joseph Thomas Brown can be pictured in the centre of this photograph. Surrounded by his workmates, leaving Reedley pit in Burnley.

TRIALS & TRIBULATIONS
BUILDING A SHIELD
Nobody sleeps when The Young’uns are in town. They may have established their fast-growing reputation in the folk world with sublime a cappella harmonies, but the Teesside trio – Sean Cooney, Michael Hughes and David Eagle – are an unlikely force of nature on stage, beguiling audiences with irrepressible humour, bold vocals, gripping storylines and innate musicality. Describing their gigs as ‘absolute chaos’, they go on stage without set-lists, relying on infallible instinct and their unique rapport with audiences to deliver a killer show.
Their music is rooted fiercely in Teesside – specially, Stockton – where they first started singing together at the local folk club, although they spread their wings on their glorious 2012 album, When Our Grandfathers Said No, which includes a stomping French song, Pique la Baleine, a gorgeous unaccompanied arrangement of James Taylor’s You Can Close Your Eyes, some nifty instrumental work, a couple of rollicking shanties and plentiful strong original material from Sean Cooney. When Our Grandfathers Said No is a line from one of his most compelling songs, The Battle of Stockton, recalling an incident in 1933 when Oswald Mosely’s Blackshirts targeted deprived areas as potential fascist hotbeds and marched over the Tees – to be physically repelled by 2,000 outraged Stockton townsfolk. had the privilege of chatting to David Eagle live on the show back in July. http://www.theyounguns.co.uk/
JOANNE DEXTER – SOPRANO
Just some reviewers’ descriptions of the soprano Joanne Dexter.
Over the years she has worked with a colourful array of performers from celebrated baritones Bryn Terfel and Sir Thomas Allen to comic legend Ken Dodd and Strictly Come Dancing judge Craig Revel Horwood.
From an early age Joanne seemed destined to become a singer. She was raised in a musical family and later trained at the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama, now renamed the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland. Had the great pleasure of speaking to Joanne Dexter, from Otley back in early March. Wonderful lady. And such a beautiful angelic voice. http://www.jodexter.co.uk/
BRITISH TRANSPLANT GAMES 2014
I spoke to Lisa Beaumont from the Yorkshire branch of the transplant games back in July of this year. A fantastic lady who spends a great deal of her time involved with organizing funding and support for those taking part in the games. Below is an interview with Lisa on the weekend of the British Transplant Games 2014 in Bolton.
Pete and Hazel are The Ginjammers, an acoustic two-piece bringing a deep rootsy americana sound to the streets of Lancashire and beyond.
Their music can not defined by one genre, as they traverse a varied soundscape ranging from bluegrass, folk, country, gospel and blues. Displaying such incredible close harmonies you could be mistaken in thinking that they are brother and sister.
Often they have been compared to Gillian Welch and Dave Rawlings which is a massive compliment, although the Ginjammers music is intrinsically more upbeat, they definitely have that same connection on stage.
