Peggy Seeger 5 September 2021

Peggy Seeger's extraordinary musical career spans six and a half decades. Since the age of 17 she has been writing, performing and recording songs pretty much non-stop. At the age of 80 she won the BBC Radio 2 Folk Award for Best New Song with her son Calum and earlier this year, at the age of nearly 86, she released her latest album.

Peggy tells Michael Berkeley about her complex 30-year love affair with Ewan McColl, which was at the heart of the British folk revival; together they produced more than 40 albums, the revolutionary Radio Ballads for the BBC – and three very musical children.

Helena Attlee 12 September 2021

Helena has spent most of her life immersed in Italian culture, and she has written two bestselling books that take her readers to the heart of Italy via unexpected avenues: The Land Where Lemons Grow tells the story of citrus-growing in Italy, from the Medici to the Mafia; and Lev's Violin recounts her obsessive search in Italy and beyond to discover the history of a battered but beautiful old violin.

The violin was being played by the world folk band Moishe's Bagel and she found herself captivated not only by the concert's bittersweet klezmer but by this particular violin. Helena chooses music by Paganini that takes her to the Tuscan garden once owned by Napoleon's sister; a folk song from Sicily, the heartland of Italian citrus farming; and a moving recording of singing from the windows of Siena during the lockdown.

Daddy, won't you take me back to Muhlenberg County, Down by the Green River where Paradise lay

"Paradise" is a song written by John Prine for his father, and recorded for his 1971 debut album, John Prine. The song is about what happened to the area around the Green River in Kentucky because of strip mining. The song references the Peabody Coal Company, and a town called Paradise in Muhlenberg County, Kentucky. The Everly Brothers, natives of Muhlenberg County, recorded a version for their 1973 album Pass the Chicken & Listen.

John Prine was the son of William Mason Prine, a tool-and-die maker, and Verna Valentine (Hamm), a homemaker, both from Muhlenberg County, Kentucky. He was born and raised in the Chicago suburb of Maywood. In summers, they would go back to visit family near Paradise, Kentucky. In the song Prine asks to have his ashes dispersed on the Green River. After his death in 2020 this wish was fulfilled.

Wednesday 1 September BBC Radio 2 9.00pm Folk Show

Mark catches up with Sam Kelly, who is releasing a new album with his band, The Lost Boys.

Thursday 2 September BBC Radio 4 11.30am Song of the Thames

Singer and song collector Sam Lee traces the wonders of the distinctly English chalk stream, with a journey along the largest and most famous, the River Thames. Beginning at its source in the idyllic Cotswold countryside and following the majestic water all the way to its most famous stretch through central London, he unearths the untold origins of England's best-known river.

Through folklore, music, ecology and lives along 215 miles of river, he discovers the past, present and future influence of a stretch of water with deep cultural roots stretching through the heart of England. Who is fed and who is starved by the river now and what does it mean to the people who live along its banks?

By coincidence, cooperative publishing venture The Ballad Partners is publishing Martin Graebe's "Forgotten Songs of the Upper Thames: Folk Songs from the Alfred Williams Collection". Here you'll find the songs omitted from Williams' 1923 book from those he collected between 1914 and 1916 in the Upper Thames Valley. Surely this deserves an expedition along the Thames too.

I don't know how much of the one-hour programme will be dedicated to Ms Griffith. Typically, the featured segments on the Wed. night folk show are very short. But the country show may approach things differently, especially in the case of a tribute of this nature.

6.45pm Sloe Time; Reliving childhood adventures in the Chiltern’s, pretending to be the princess in the thorny bush, Lisa recalls dangerous, warning stabs from the blackthorns cruel spikes. She talks to Samuel Robinson, coppicer and woodsman, who knows the blackthorn better than most. For Lisa he sings a beautiful song about the blackthorn winter, the false spring, his dog’s violent encounter with a deer, and his own confrontation with death.

Music by Samuel Robinson - ‘Blackthorn’ - featuring Hannah Flynn

7.00 A Commemoration of Peterloo = The Masque of Anarchy
Maxine Peake performs Percy Bysshe Shelley’s poem of protest The Masque of Anarchy. Shelley was compelled to respond to the massacre in which cavalrymen charged campaigners protesting against the restrictive parliamentary representation of the time in St Peters Field Manchester leaving 15 dead and 700 injured.

Recorded only a few miles from where it happened, Maxine Peake's performance makes the poem - a call for political action - resonate for a contemporary audience.

We also hear eyewitness accounts from Samuel Bamford a radical reformer who led the group from Middleton and his wife Jemima Bamford performed by Jason Done and Christine Bottomley. Contemporary ballads written in the aftermath are sung by Jennifer Read.

BBC Radio 3 - The Listening Service
Fiddles and Fiddle Tunes

25 Jul 2021    Available for over a year

What’s the difference between a fiddle and a violin?

How did an English jig turn into a Virginian reel?

And what do Bach’s violin sonatas have in common with folk tunes from Finland?

In The Listening Service today Tom Service explores fiddles, fiddlers, and fiddle tunes from around the globe, looking at how they connect communities, reflecting the stories of migrants and musicians across time, and staying true to tradition whilst continually changing. And how have classical composers incorporated fiddle tunes into their work? From Max Bruch’s Scottish Fantasy, based on tunes found in a library in Munich, to Aaron Copland’s Rodeo Hoe-Down, an orchestral transformation of the Kentucky fiddler Bill Stepp’s tune Bonaparte’s Retreat.

Our witnesses today are Pete Cooper, who learnt classical violin as a teenager before discovering busking and ending up fiddling in West Virginia, and Lori Watson whose music and research draw on the landscapes and folklore of the Scottish Borders where she grew up.

Soul Music; The Parting Glass

So fill to me the parting glass...
Goodnight and joy be to you all.

A popular toast at the end of an evening or a heartfelt farewell to a departed or deceased person? The Parting Glass has become synonymous with leaving. It was written in Scotland and has criss crossed the Irish Sea becoming a popular song among Celtic peoples around the world.
Folk singer Karine Polwart talks of its fragile beauty as a song that can be a rousing drinking song at the end of the night but equally a poignant farewell at a funeral.
For Alaskan Fire Chief Benjamin Fleagle there was no more fitting song to honour his mentor and colleague at his Fire Department when he passed away over a decade ago. The song still brings out raw emotion in him.
Alissa McCulloch 'clung' to the song when she heard the Irish singer Hozier sing a version of it at the start of the pandemic in March 2020. At the time Alissa was seriously mentally unwell at home in Australia and was admitted to hospital where she listened to the song over and over finding comfort in its timeless beauty.
After Canada's worst mass shooting in its history Pete MacDonald and his sisters recorded an acapella version of the song as a musical tribute to those who lost their lives. It's a tradition in Novia Scotia to sing in the kitchen at parties, wakes and celebrations and they wanted to pay their respects to the dead.
The Irish singer Finbar Furey has performed the song with his band the Fureys and talks about its appeal not only in Scotland and Ireland but throughout the Scots-Irish diaspora.

But since it falls unto my lot
That I should rise
And you should not
I'll gently rise and softly call
Goodnight and joy be to you all

Lives lived to the fullest for the better and the worse, activist causes driven and dropped, both men are now creating age-conscious but not-so-elegiac songs and releasing their most potent, reflective and even imaginative work in decades with this weekend’s release of Crosby’s “For Free” and Browne’s “Downhill From Everywhere”.

"Contrary to the claim in the dialogue, Sharp did credit Louie Hooper, Lucy White and John England for all the songs they contributed to 'Folk Songs from Somerset'. There was no quarrel with Louie Hooper, who remembered Sharp very fondly after his death as a kind and generous friend. And he also paid her and her sister for their songs."

Perhaps, the complete departure from reality was the only way the playwright was able to build the edifice to deliver the payload. The playwright would have known that what they were writing was not true and this is the only explanation I can come up with.

I can see why you would be angry though. Luckily I did not know the facts until you presented them.

i am not an expert on Sharp. Brian tell us more about the misrepresentations, i am only interested in learning more.

Briefly, Dick:
Contrary to the claim in the dialogue, Sharp did credit Louie Hooper, Lucy White and John England for all the songs they contributed to 'Folk Songs from Somerset'. There was no quarrel with Louie Hooper, who remembered Sharp very fondly after his death as a kind and generous friend. And he also paid her and her sister for their songs.

I did like the speech about the meaning and context of the songs as Louie experienced them, and agree that such feelings cannot be captured by a notation on a piece of paper. But that notation gives others the opportunity to sing and enjoy the song, and to develop their own pleasurable experiences.

The bottom line is that, although drama is allowed to take liberties and to fill in the gaps where we don't know exactly what was said and felt, I don't believe there's any excuse for presenting the opposite of what we know actually happened.

I finally listened to the Cecil Sharp play - quite moving when Louis talks about the countryside being in the songs, her relationship and memories were stored in the songs too. So writing the song down is actually impossible, but I think it is probably still worth doing even if it only provides a crude silhouette. For me, it is a reminder that life cannot easily be translated into another form without losing essence.

I enjoyed the song choice, the singing and the debates.

my point was that the BBc and Radio 4 in particular are repeatedly trailing an obsequious 'tribute which might be valid on Radio 1.

Dunno which particular programme you have in mind.

Could it be the all-Dylan request edition on the Folk Show next week?

8.00 Tate Britain Great British Walks; Miriam Margolyes walks in the footsteps of Alfred Wallis
9.00 Miriam Margolyes reflects on her life.
These 80 year olds certainly keep going. Any others?

BBC Radio 4 Bob Dylan at 80

It Ain’t Me You’re Looking For: Bob Dylan at 80 BBC Radio 4, 17-21 May, 1.45-2pm From Monday 17 May, Professor Sean Latham presents It Ain’t Me You’re Looking For: Bob Dylan at 80.

Latham is Director of the Institute for Bob Dylan Studies at the University of Tulsa, and in this five part series, richly illustrated with music, he looks closely at the songs and draws on the vast Bob Dylan Archive, including material never broadcast before, to explore the life, work and influence of this great and elusive artist.

Dinner With Dylan BBC Radio 4, 22 May, 3-4pm Dinner With Dylan is based on a true story and delves into the passionately dedicated world of Dylan fans, or as they dub themselves ‘Bobcats’.

Jon Canter’s script recounts an evening over dinner between friends Richard Curtis, Kerry Shale, Lucas Hare and Eileen Atkins - and each will play themselves in this audio drama, a first for Curtis. Akbar Kurtha (24, Small Axe) plays the part of Sam the waiter - ever eager to please his demanding guests.

Bob Dylan: Verbatim BBC Radio 4, 22 May, 8-9pm

The documentary Bob Dylan: Verbatim explores Bob Dylan's life and career told in his own words, incorporating rare interviews, studio outtakes and classic Dylan musings in his own inimitable style.

What’s So Great About… Bob Dylan? BBC Radio 4 Extra, 24 May, 2.30-3pm

On 4Extra is What’s So Great About… Bob Dylan? presented by Lenny Henry in which he questions the greatness of the musician he never really got to grips with.

Poet Andrew Motion, Kris Kristofferson, Bryan Ferry, Jools Holland and Al Kooper, who played with Dylan on some of his most famous albums in the 1960s, are among the defence team.
