I’m back from WOMAD…had a fantastic time and totally recommend going. It’s got a really great atmosphere, very chilled, love the mix of dance, arts and music and continually discovering new stuff. I’m just putting together a WOMAD show, featuring music from some of my favourite acts. I tried to buy tunes while I was there but so did a million other people so I’m not sure when it’ll be broadcast but I’ll give you some warning!
Onwards to Wednesday night’s show (4th Aug), here’s what’s taking my fancy:
Bingley Music Live final
On Wednesday night I’ll be playing music from four more bands competing to open Bingley Music Live in September. It’s the big final competition at St George’s Hall on Saturday 24th so if you want to have a say in who goes through, get yourselves to the gig.
These are the runners and riders:
Jasmine Kennedy, Sharp Darts, The Mexanines, Secrets Sirens, Northern Glory, The Beat Marshalls, Black Diamond Bay and The Dawnriders. Good luck one and all! I’ve been at some of the heats and I can promise you these guys are great.
I’m getting ready to go to WOMAD – very excited already. I’m off to see Rolf Harris for goodness sake! Getting giddy about Horace Andy, Nouvelle Vague Club, Soil & Pimp, Ghislain Poirier, DJ Kentaro…so much good stuff. Promise to play some WOMAD treats on the show over the next few weeks.
Don’t forget, get in touch if you’ve got some tunes you’d like me to play, gigs to plug: firstname.lastname@example.org
OOh and next week’s session (28th July) comes from Leeds lovelies Pifco!
