C7 Concert – The New Radio Ballads – In The Footsteps Of Ewan MacColl. Support Huw Williams & Ben Tunnicliffe

August 12 AT 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm

£11.50 – £23.00

In the 50s and 60s, Ewan MacColl, Charles Parker and Peggy Seeger created the groundbreaking Radio Ballads broadcasts for BBC Home Service to highlight the experiences of real people, weaving the voices of rarely heard communities with songs written about their recorded interviews. Almost half a century later, in 2006, a new set of Radio Ballads was commissioned by BBC Radio 2, involving a team of folk/acoustic/roots musicians and singers, under the guiding hands of producer John Leonard and musical director, John Tams.

Three members of that team, Bob Fox, Jez Lowe and Julie Matthews, have put together a selection of songs from the 2006 Radio Ballads. Expect to be entertained and enlightened by songs of joy, love, hardship, and humour.
