Global A Go-Go: Friday May 27, 5-7 PM presents:
Great to be back after a week out of town. Thanks to Sean from Slight Surface Noise Soundsystem for holding it down for me — I got to hear most of his show, and I thought it was superb.
You've probably already heard that May marks the 70th birthday of one of the most important musicians from the 1960's folk revival, a man whose music remains vital and current today. It's Bob Dylan's 70th birthday as well. But the man I'm talking about is Martin Carthy — British balladeer, virtuoso guitarist, member of seminal bands Steeleye Span, The Albion Country Band, Brass Monkey, The Watersons and The Imagined Village. Today's show starts with a tribute to the career of Martin Carthy.
You'll also hear tracks from three new desert blues releases, by Vieux Farka Toure, Terakaft and Bombino. And I'll play a selection from the record whose review is now the all-time most read post on my blog: Gozalo! Bugalu Tropical 4.
