Listening Through The Lens On Air

City Park Radio

Broadcast 31 March 2024

By Jim Jacob

Welcome to our recap of the Listening Through The Lens Radio Program, broadcast on City Park Radio, on the last Sunday of every month.

Program 3 was aired on 31 March 2024.

We looked back on the 47th Port Fairy Folk Festival that we attended a couple of weeks ago.  We had an interview we recorded there with English folk singer/songwriter Katherine Priddy and we played music from other artists who appeared at the event.  There was also some new music from our Albums Of The Month.

Katherine Priddy is from Birmingham, England.  Just last month, Priddy released her second album The Pendulum Swing. We spoke with her after one of her sets. Now, there’s a bit of background noise at the start and even more at the end with a rather loud drum sound check, so we’ve had to cut the recording at both ends. Straight after the interview, I’ll play “Selah” from the new album.

Read the interview transcript HERE.

Canadian Cat Clyde has just finished touring Australia for the first time.  An expressive singer with a powerful voice, here is “Eternity” from her album of last year Down Rounder.

3. Touring with Cat Clyde is John Craigie, another artist we spoke with. From Portland Oregon, he has a terrific sense of humour and is a great songwriter.  The song I’m going to play is “Judas” from his new album Pagan Church.

One of our absolute highlights at the festival was seeing Graham Nash live.  It was a classic song set from the man who was in The Hollies and Crosby, Stills Nash (and sometimes Young).  Here’s one of the songs he performed, “Chicago” released way back in 1971.

The Pleasures formed only last year.  Lachlan Bryan and Catherine Britt teamed up and released their first album called The Beginning Of The End and they played all those songs at their set at Port Fairy.  Here’s a great duet piece “Every Story Has Two Sides”.

Gaby Moreno moved from Guatemala to the US and is a lovely vocalist. This song is called “Dance The Night Away”.

Now we move to some of our favourite releases of the month and you can read all these reviews on our website. First up, The Steel Wheels who I saw a few times in Arkansas in 2015, a wonderful outfit that combines ballads, bluegrass and gospel.  They released an album called Sideways and here is the title track.

John Levanthal is a producer, arranger and partner to Rosanne Cash.  After 45 years in the music business, he has decided to release an album under his own name and it’s got a great groove.  Here’s the title track.

Jobi Riccio was raised in Denver and has now moved to Nashville.  She reminds me a little of Joni Mitchell.  The song I’m about to play is called “Summer” from an album named Whiplash.

Legacy is the new album from Kyshona (pronounced ‘Kuh-shaun-uh’) and it features songs from her ancestry, dating back to 1860.  If you like funk, soul and immersive roots, you might well like this.  The track is called “The Echo”.

Sarah Jarosz won three Grammys before she turned 28.  She has released another classy album titled The Polaroid Lovers and this tune is called “Days Can Turn Around”.

Thanks for listening.
