Roots and Fusion Radio Session Podcast

Little darling, it's been a long cold lonely winter... thankfully we seem to have seen the last of the snow for the moment. It caused us a bit of disruption, not least because we had to pull out of a trip to record a live session and interview with Rick Stuart of Roots and Shoots, who puts together an eclectic music programme featuring Blues, Roots, World Folk and beyond on Stockport's Pure Radio 107.8fm. A week later than planned, the white stuff having melted a bit, we made the trip up the M6 and it was well worth the wait.

Rather than record in the studio, Rick and sound engineer Jason had the idea that we should record an impromptu, unadvertised gig at the amazing Ash Tea Rooms, a rather splendid and refined establishment incorporating CC Cakes, who have supplied wedding cakes to the Royal Family. (They can now add to their CV 'supplier of 2 sausage and bean casseroles and a greek salad to Whalebone'.) We played the gig to a slightly startled but friendly audience and recorded an interview which you can hear here - thankfully no recording was made of us demolishing the sausage and bean casserole... You can find the link to the podcast and a couple of photos from the day below:


Ash Tea Rooms - big cake!

Ash Tea Rooms - more cakes :)
