An English Folk Festival, feat. Dave Swarbrick

Today on Radio Riel we present a diverse collection of English folk music, traditional and modern, from the 60s to the past decade, featuring and celebrating the life and music of master fiddler Dave Swarbrick (pictured above*), who passed away on June 3, 2016.

You’ll hear artists like Fairport Convention (with and without Swarbrick), Kirsty MacColl, Bellowhead, The Unthanks, Magpie Lane, Chumbawamba, Pentangle, Vashti Bunyan and many more.

Then join us at 11am / 7pm Pacific Time (19:00 / 03:00 UK time) for Part 8 of our classic ZBS radio serial, Moon Over Morocco — next week at the same time.
