Songs that rattle with the ghosts of Appalachian folk, and southern blues, yet sound emphatically English.

Old before his years country-folk fellow who mixes intricate John Fahey finger-picking with confessional tales of dirty old Leeds - THE GUARDIAN

Serious Sam Barrett, from Addingham, splendid folk blues from the West Yorkshire hills.
Gideon Coe (BBC Radio 6) (BBC Radio 6)
