"Yer tiz again - zongs music and danzin' from dear ole Dart-i-moor!"

Listen again to the show here

That's a quote from the legendary Bob Cann (1916-90) who founded Dartmoor Folk Festival 34 years ago. He was the grandfather of Mark Bazeley, melodeon and concertina player. Accordionist Jason Rice comes from the famous Chagford-based Rice family. Alan Quick is the press and grants officer for Dartmoor Folk Festival.
All three guested on rootsandshoots today. Fantastic music, guys! We thank them all for coming in and hope that they had as much of a ball as we did! All who attend the festival can be sure of a fantastic and memorable time.

Dartmoor Folk Festival follows Sidmouth Folk Week and many of the artists featured today are appearing at one or both events. The dates for the respective festivals this year are 5 - 7 August (Dartmoor) and 29 July - 5 August (Sidmouth).

Interactive radio

We frequently put out messages on air inviting listeners to email or phone in even though we recognise that probably only a small proportion want to do so. It's always good to get a response even when a listener tells us in no uncertain terms that a track we've played is not to their taste - which happened today. Fortunately we had more people telling us about things they enjoyed! And the protesting listener wrote back to say that she normally enjoyed our choices!!

Sadly, Nicky Swann - due to come in to perform on the show today - was unwell. We'll find another date for her to entertain us. Get well soon, Nicky!

We played
Max Pashm..Manea-K..Remixed Vol 1 - EP
