Katy Spicer, the English Folk Dance and Song Society (EFDSS) Chief Executive and Artistic Director is busy packing her bag for Celtic Connections this weekend, but there’s lots to be excited about even if you can’t make the trip up to Glasgow.
On Friday, Suzy Klein presents a special edition of In Tune live from Cecil Sharp House to launch Radio 3's Folk Connections weekend from 4.30pm.
With live music from special guests including folk singer Rosie Hood with her Dovetail Trio, singer-songwriter Emily Portman, pianist David Owen Norris, baritone Peter Savidge, folk duo Belshazzar's Feast and early music ensemble Florilegium, the show will be a glorious celebration of folk music from Britain and around the world.
Then, throughout the weekend, the radio station will take on a folk theme, with lots of special shows and performances both from Celtic Connections and further afield. More information on the schedule can be found here.
