The Blue Pig Orchestra in session for Roots & Fusion

12 March 2014 by Pure Radio

Mike & Jo from the Blue Pig orchestra recorded an acoustic session for Roots & Fusion in the intimate surroundings of Barista Café Bar on the stairs of Stockport’s Little Underbank.

Bringing along both 6 and 12 string guitars, harmonica, mandolin and gorgeous vocal harmonies, they played four tunes, including a version of Gallows Hill, before having a chat with Rick.

This song has just won the Folkstock sponsored competition, Song For Swarb, to have a fiddle part recorded by Dave Swarbrick and included on the Pass The Baton EP.
