Michelle Holding & Bonz in the Roots & Fusion studio

10 June 2015 by Pure Radio

I was really pleased to welcome Michelle Holding & Bonz into the Roots & Fusion studio,which they then settled into and made their home for about an hour.

Between them they played guitar, banjo and accordion, told stories and had a great time, all recorded by Aaron Hixon.

We also had a chat about their new CD “11 Crosses”, Morris Dancing, and a bamboo bike. Oh yes, and the real history of the banjo…
