To get us in the Bank Holiday mood for Above The Beaten Track on Saturday 27th August at The Bluecoat we thought we’d give you a little treat. This show is the edition of BBC Radio Merseyside’s Folkscene programme that was originally broadcast on 4th August 2011.
The show’s host Stan Ambrose interviews Dave from Mellowtoneand Rich and Johnny from Beaten Tracks about the forthcoming event at The Bluecoat, and plays songs from some of the artists playing on the day, including Mike Badger & The Shady Trio, The Sixteen Tonnes, and Andy Steele.
