Steve on Mike Harding Show Wed 24 August…

August 20th 2011

On Wednesday night’s Mike Harding programme, Steve Knightley talks about his role in the Cecil Sharp Project, in which songwriters from both sides of the Atlantic celebrated the life and work of Victorian song collector Cecil Sharp.

Jim Moray, Jackie Oates, Patsy Reid, Leonard Podolak (The Duhks), Caroline Herring, Kathryn Roberts and Andy Cutting all took part in the project, which was commissioned by the Shrewsbury Folk Festival. The new works can be heard on a new album and live on stage in a forthcoming UK tour.

Steve tells Mike Harding how the project came together, as Mike plays a selection of songs that came out of the house.
