To whet your appetite for Above The Beaten Track on Saturday 14th August (see previous post here for full details) we thought we’d give you a little treat. This extra Spotlight show is the edition of BBC Radio Merseyside’s Folkscene programme that was originally broadcast on Thursday 29th July.
The show’s host Stan Ambrose interviews Dave McTague from Mellowtone about the forthcoming event at The Bluecoat, and plays songs from some of the artists playing on the day, including Atlantic Massey, Ragz, Stuart Anthony, Misery Guts, and Jeff Jepson.

p.s. Did you know that Folkscene is UK radio’s longest running folk programme, and has had the same two presenters, Stan Ambrose and Geoff Speed, since the very start, over 39 years ago?
p.p.s. Did you know Stan Ambrose will be playing his harp throughout the day in the Foyer Hub.
