Folk Proms Reminder (UK radio and telly) 20th July
« on: July 18, 2008, 04:23:34 PM »

Just a reminder of this Sunday's folk at the proms, lots of Radio 3 air time but also on BBC 4 (digital TV)

19:30   Proms on FOUR 2008
Folk Day

Charles Hazlewood presents a live concert showcasing some of Britain's most exciting folk talent including Bella Hardy, guitarist Martin Simpson and the award-winning 11-piece big band Bellowhead featuring our very own Squeezy in Bellowhead.  (See press for full details ;))

With a bit of luck it will be on the BBC's iPlayer for those in the UK that missed it or want to see it again.

PS I thought a new thread with a more general title would be more eye catching

Just time for the sweepstake on how many actual folksongs will be broadcast.  Let's see, an hour an three quarters for the BBC4 prog, I'll go for three.  Any advance?

Well hush my cynical mouth, I counted six.  Fair play to the young 'uns!

I happened to have the subtitles while Choppers Hardy was singing Dog & Gun and noticed some real howlers in the written version.  I googled the lyrics and the first version that came up had exactly the same mistakes.
