Hardeep chatting to Dave Stearn ahead of his show at Sale Waterside Arts Centre on March 9th 2017.
Ahead of our Team GB Heroes Homecoming Parade coverage in Manchester City Centre.
Paul Holloway spoke to Heaton Moor’s Golden Girl Kate Richardson Walsh.
Kate finished her 17 year international career by captaining Team GB to Hockey Gold in Rio.
Award winning folk singer songwriter Ange Hardy recorded her 2nd session for Roots & Fusion round my place.
Making the decision to record without her trademark looping, Ange unplugged and sang a range of songs, both new and old.
Ange also decided to start the session off by allowing Roots & Fusion to play an unreleased song of hers, recorded for February Album Writing Month in 2012.
We then had a chat, and in another rare coup – Ange’s other half Rob Swan joined in…
1) I’ve Got A Fan – FAWM 2012
2) Hollow I Am
3) The Two Sisters (The Berkshire Tragedy)
4) By The Tides
5) The Passing Lullaby
6) Ange & Rob in conversation
