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.
